One of the athletes profiled this year presents the enigma of sports. This is a man who is at the peak of his very demanding profession, and he made it clear that he feels going out and competing in the Ironman puts him alongside 'the best athletes in the world.'
He also said that he 'hates to run, hates to bike, and hates to swim.'
I guess I can understand that, sort of. I can't say I still hate to swim, but I know there was a time I did. As I (slowly) get better, I hate it less.
But still- he hates all three sports- and he's racing Kona ?
Now that's dedication to an idea....
