Ironman Fever

During TCM it was decided that 2010 would be the year of the Ironman.  (You have to plan a year ahead because the fields fill up in minutes after registration opens.)  We - CS & M - are aiming for Madison with Canada as a possible back-up.  Yesterday was the 2008 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii - "The Ironman" - and I watched a bunch of the race live online and I just read some race reports on some blogs I watch and now I can't wait!  The way I figure it, I can swim no problem, I can run an incredibly painful marathon (done it), but I have to get used to being in the saddle for five + hours.  Good thing I've got a year and a half to put it all together.  Have I completely lost my mind?  I certainly hope so.
