Rural Girl's latest post is full of interesting pieces of information. First, her husband is going to tackle his first half-marathon at that race. It is always awesome to see people challenging themselves. Who knows, in the future, it might be Rural Girl playing sherpa at a big race. Having spent quite a bit of time with her family, I know she would jump right into it, and I know she will support her husband as he trains for and completes this race.
Here's a little picture of me from my the 2006 Fox Cities Marathon, where I set my PR at that distance. I believe my chip time was something like 3:54, but the clock shows enough to paint the picture. So, I'm POSITIVE Rural Girl has a sub-4 hour marathon in those legs of hers. All she has to do is find out if Las Vegas is where she runs that race.
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.
