Irony. An incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected results. Most often used in sentences of the "isn't it ironic that" variety.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
