Wow! Anyone fancy a bit (ahem!) of a challenge?

Just got a notice through our door for local road closures for the Ironman UK competition. Would you believe some crazy people are going to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and then run 26.2 miles! All in one day! I've heard of triathlons but much respect to anyone taking all that on! I'll stick to pootling around thanks! :0)

Weird tag for that - obviously they don't have a superhero tag!

Wow, they must be mad.

One of my colleagues is doing it and yes she is mad. She did the Marathon Des Sables a couple of years ago, a marathon every day for 6 days in the desert, totally bonkers! But as we have all seen, it's amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind (and body) to it!

I could never imagine doing either one of them so I have massive respect for anyone that can do all three, especially in one day! Good luck to your colleague, I wish her well!
