Best Toy Ever?

How many Ironman titles would I own if I'd had this toy when I was 3!?!?!

Way off the tri track

My mother put me on to a video recently and I finally sat down and watched the whole thing - it's an hour and forty minutes.
It's a debate between two extremely well spoken men on religion. Not a light topic.
Regardless of where you stand, you have got to respect brilliance when you see it.

Would love to hear from anyone who takes the time to watch it.
I expect that regardless of what side you take, you will not be swayed either way but maybe you will ask a few questions you hadn't considered prior.

Putting the Me in M dot

I would like to compete in the Kona Ironman World Championships.
If, one day, I'm fortunate enough to find myself on the start line I'm not going to race for recovery, the planet, polar bears or Jesus.
I won't be running for the cure, rolling for the Blazeman or Living Strong
I'm not going to raise money for battered women, battered children or battered dogs.
I won't be raising awareness for Aids, Crohn's, MS or Osteogenesis Imperfecta.
I've done some of these things before. They've allowed me to paint my performances with a nice stroke of humility and healthy dose of "It doesn't matter to me. There's a much bigger picture." But if I'm able to work hard enough to qualify for Hawaii then I am going to race for Me. My goal will be to have the best day I can possibly have.
Actually that's still a load of sanctimonious crap. What I really want. What I really, really want is to beat as many people as I can.
I have got to be one of the worst guys ever.

Kona 09 Done

Not everyone had a good day.
Now I'm going to bed.
