Breathtaking. Heck sign me up then
How many times do you hear people say “I was going to do that.”, when you start talking about an event you signed up for. Okay, maybe if you’re signing up for endurance sporting events that go on for 50, 100, or 200 miles, you may not get too many people responding with such a comment….
but lately, more and more folks are becoming more interested in this ‘phenomenon’ of long-distance sporting events. Want to run 100K through the wilderness? You can! Want to bike across America? Sure, go for it! How about swim 7 miles, bike 350 and then throw your running shoes on and go for a 75 mile run? Heck yeah baby! You can do that too.
Everybody started somewhere. A 3 mile race. A 10 mile bike ride. A swim in the pool because their knees were shot and they needed to do ANYTHING, just SOMETHING to stay fit. [And now they’re swimming the English Channel]
Mine? It’s a marathon this year. I swore I’d never run farther than 3 miles. That was 10 years ago.
And now this. The Bay to Bay Ride.
Anything that has “breathtaking” and “views of the coast” in the ad copy — well, i’m a sucker for.
Plus, it’s for a great cause…which means it’ll be easier for me to rope somebody into doing it with me.
It’ll take me 60 seconds to sign up.
