Ironman Jared

I always knew Jared was a finisher, but it never entered my head that he'd try something like this,  The Vineman Triathlon in Santa Rosa, California.  He did this last Saturday, July 30, 2011. A full Iron Man triathlon.  If you don't know, that is a 2.4 mile swim for starters, then a 112 mile bike ride, and then a full marathon run of 26.2 miles to top of the day.  These are the official results posted on the World Wide Web for anyone interested in it.  Personally, I think it is a huge accomplishment.  And remember, he's not twenty-one years old any more.  In fact he's exactly twice that.  Pretty Impressive.
Now, we'll hope he makes it home safely.

This is a wikipedia entry about the Ironman for anyone who wants to know.

An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) consisting of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike and a marathon (26.2 miles 42.195 km) run, raced in that order and without a break. Most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race, where the Ironman race starts at 7 AM, the mandatory swim cut off for the 2.4 mile swim is 2 hours 20 minutes, the bike cut off time is 5:30 PM, and all finishers must complete their marathon by midnight.
The name "Ironman Triathlon" refers to both the original Ironman triathlon and the annual Ironman World Championship. Also called Ironman Hawaii, the world championships of the event, held annually in Hawaii since 1978 (with an additional race in 1982), are now preceded by a series of qualifying events. Ironman Triathlon became known for its grueling length, harsh race conditions, and television coverage.
