Watching the ironman
There are thunderstoms in the area so no riding for me today. I'll hit the gym later and get on the dreaded elliptical. :(

While I'd normally be riding this time on a Saturday morning I've had time today to watch the Ironman Triathlon on Universal Sports. I'm not into tri's personally, but the stories of some of the competitors, cancer survivors, a young man who lost his leg at 8 in a farming accident, paraplegics, a Navy Seal who started the race by parachuting into the bay . . . wonderfully inspirational.

It all reminded me of a quote a friend of mine sent to me earlier this week:

"Men do less than they ought, unless they do all they can." --Thomas Carlyle

Have a good one!
