Vineman 70.3

Yesterday, I signed up for the Vineman 70.3 Half Ironman!!!!

A half ironman is a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and 13.1 run (half marathon).

Vineman takes place in Sonoma County, CA, and the bike ride goes through 4 separate vineyards, and the run is just beautiful I hear.

I am not sure if I am doing this w/ TNT or not yet, but I am doing this in honor of my good friend, Jeff Hartnett. When Jeff got into the UC Berkeley a few years ago, he had his heart set on doing this event. Unfortunately, for the past 2 years, his non hodgkin's lymphoma has prevented him from training and racing this event.

Vineman will also take place on the same day as Ironman Lake Placid, another race Jeff wants to do, and his brother will be participating in that.

This one's for you buddy!
