Bruce Morgan, my friend, colleague, and exercise mentor, completed the Ironman Arizona this weekend, his first. He finished in 13:21, well under his goal time of fourteen hours. He also completed it with no major injuries -- his other goal. His blog entry describes his experience.
I, on the other hand, showed up to work today with my shirt inside out. QuornFlour had to point it out to me. I even argued with her for ten seconds before realizing it myself. Not a high competence moment for me.
Anyway, congratulations to Bruce on his huge accomplishment!
