B-Fit B-Day Challenge... Going for the Gold

Next week (February 11) I turn 47 years old. And, to celebrate my good health and the extraordinary love in my life I am taking on a big, no.... huge, no... gi-normous, no... epic birthday challenge. I will be the first to attempt the Gold level in the RaceAthlete B-Fit B-Day Challenge.

On Saturday, February 9th I will swim, bike, and run according to my age as follows:

Swim 4 miles (that's 6,600 yards folks!)
Bike 47 miles
Run 7 miles...

....within 24 hours.

You can learn more about the RaceAthlete B-Fit B-Day Challenge here.

Come back tomorrow for details of where I will get my challenge on.

Stay tuned...

Oh gosh... of course you can do all 58 of those miles in 24 hours! I'll look back tomorrow... unless I hear about it at masters practice first... but because of my training schedule and day of work at Bikemart... don't know if I could join you for any of it. We'll see!

Happy early birthday! The b-fit challenge is pretty cool, but 4 miles in the pool. Is that realistic? I am doing 4,000meters on Saturday. I am planning on spending the whole day in the pool. 6,600 is too extreme for me.

Martin Strel who swam the Amazon River in 2007 probably swims 10,000m in the pool all the time?

Don't wanna burst your b-day bubble- but I got ya by a few days. And a few less years ;)

But I haven't been in water larger than a bathtub since Aug- so 3 miles will be a tough one.
