The Ticket’s Morning Musers returned to the radio airwaves from vacation this morning. On his vacation, Junior Miller ran an Ironman triathlon, something he said he’d never do. I heard him tell the story this morning. If you didn’t, you can read a version here. My favorite passage:

By the halfway point of the run, I was dead. I again had to talk myself out of quitting. I eventually figured that I’d come this far, done all of the training, and would probably never do another one of these stupid events again, so I might as well finish, even if I have to walk the rest of the way.
