    Default Ironman, anyone here?

    Doing #3 this year, curious if anyone else on this forum does them also.
    I also do shorter distance triathlons and have a hidden love for Ultra running, did a 50k last year and would like to do something longer this year.

    I had a friend who did the first Ultraman on the big island back in '84. I played the support team gig. The stamina, dedication and endurance necessary for these kinds of events has always amazed me.

    Sadly no. I'm totally crap at swimming. A buddy has talked me into going to training sessions with him though, so maybe some day. Right now I am prepping for a 100k later this year. Not sure I'll manage to get to the finish line, but I'm gonna give it a go

    I want to do a 50 MI this year also, I've done 50 k and really enjoy running even though I'm not that great at it.

    I'm not great at swimming, I just use it as a warm up. 100 k, that's good stuff. I am fascinated by ultra running. I did a 50 k last year and I've set a goal to try a 100 MI in 2yrs.

    I'm pretty bad at the swimming as well, takes me about an hour to do a mile. 100K? thats a long haul, I'm sure you'll make it to the finish line
