Top 5 reasons to jump off a boat into 55 deg water, swim 1.2 mi to Marina Green, hop on a bike and ride 25 mi through the Presidio and along the Great Highway, and then run 7 mi overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean:
1. Because it sounds crazy.
2. Because the US Half wasn't challenging enough.
3. Because I have nothing better to do at 7am on August 21st.
4. So Knuppel can get a free pair of socks.
5. Because my ego's still bruised from that Beginning Water Polo class I took last year.
This weekend I signed for the SF Triathlon at Alcatraz with LLS's Team in Training... All kidding aside, Knupps and I are going to spend the next 15 weeks training our asses off for our first (!!) triathlon while raising money to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. Stayed tuned for updates along the way!
