My brother the marathoner

Last fall my brother ran a marathon. And while I don’t understand the need to push your body to that limit, I am very proud of him. And when he found himself jealous of the runners who were stopping at the 13-mile mark, he decided he only needed to push his body to that limit once. He has since discovered that triathlons are perfect for him. At one point he found himself behind a guy with a perfect t-shirt:

“18 weeks ago, this seemed like a good idea.”

**Update: John has now completed many triathlons, including an Ironman.
