I’m really just blogging this morning to give props to Morty – he’s more than a runner. He’s an Ironman! Not like Robert Downey Jr. More like Mark Spitz, Lance Armstrong and Flo Jo all wrapped up into one. If you take into account his hair, he’s probably more like Bruce Jenner.
Seriously, this is a man who has done 25 marathons, or so. Impressive in it’s own right – no? But this last weekend he did a 2.4 mile swim and a 112 mile bike race on top of that run. Not in that order. The run came last.
All done in 12.5 hours. I’d still be on the swim. …and I’d puke, which he didn’t.
I think it’s great he did it and so very proud of him. I can do the bike ride (probably) but not much else.
The only thing more insane than actually doing one of these, is doing another…..which he is planning. Well, I guess it’s a better diversion than drugs, alcohol or internet porn.
