Hello world!

This blog will keep track of what is sure to be a hilarious journey to IMLP 2013.  It was supposed to start exactly one year from the race, but I could not quite figure out how all this blog stuff works.  So here we are, LESS than a year away (when does THAT sound close?) to IMLP, and the training has started.  I hope you will follow along and laugh with me as I push my old and battered body to the extreme so that, come IMLP, I can successfully push my old and battered body to the extreme . . . wait, this already is sounding like less of a great idea than it did at midnight as the last finishers were crossing the line.

Enough typing – more swim/bike/running!
