Better than lunch

My co-worker is training for the Lake Placid Ironman and she and I have both been talking about how we need a running buddy to get us motivated to get in a second run during the week. So we've decided to do a regular Thursday run during lunch, just a quick 3-4 miler down on the mall. For me, my goal is to finish a 26.6 miler, her goal is also to finish a 26. miler, but before she even starts running she'll have finished a 2.4 mile swim and a 112 mile bike ride. I don't like walking an extra half mile before a marathon. I am in awe of ironman triathaletes. They have 17 hours (HOURS) to finish the races. The winning men finish it in the mid-8 hours. I can't even begin to imagine...
