Ironman Update

So my uncle just qualified for the 2011 Kona Ironman World Championships on his first attempt. This was his first Ironman, and he placed 4th in his age group. Friggin' amazing! At first, it looked like he placed 5th in his age group, but the guy who supposedly won "missed a check point or two" and ended up running his marathon roughly an hour faster than the other 50-54 year old guys.

Uncle Rich, my hat is off to you in a big way. Enjoy a little off season, and then it's TIME TO GET BACK IN GEAR FOR KONA BABY!!!!

So Sam, how's it feel to only be the second best endurance athlete in the family?
