It's called the Iceman Cometh Challenge.  We will ride 28 miles from Kalkaska to Traverse City in northern Michigan on November 6.  Some years, it's snowing and cold.  Other years it has been warm and muddy.  Either way, it will be a long, messy ride.  It's not very technically difficult, but all off road.  I'll have to do lots of mountain biking this summer to get ready for it!

Wow!  A half Ironman is serious business!  Congrats and good luck!  I'm doing what I guess is a sprint tri - 0.5 mile swim, 14 mile bike, 5 mile run for my first attempt at it.  After that, we'll see if I sign up for a couple more this summer.  I'm also doing a 30 mile mountain bike race in November, and I'm considering a marathon next year.

Yup, I'm following your blog!  I'm doing well.  Two weeks till my first triathlon.  Training has gone great, but I've been feeling a little under the weather the past couple days.  You?
