    i want to ride and complete the arrowhead 135 ultramarathon by bike within the next two years.

    http://www.arrowheadultra.com/index.php

    "The Arrowhead 135 is recognized in the book "The World's Toughest Endurance Challenges" by Richard Hoad and Paul Moore as one of the 50 toughest races in the world. It is a human powered Ultra Marathon taking place in the coldest part of winter in the coldest city in the lower 48 states. Our average finish rate is less than 50%, the finish rate for new racers is much lower. 2014 finish rate was 35%.

    135 miles Deep Winter across Northern Minnesota on rugged, scenic Arrowhead State Snowmobile Trail from Frostbite I-Falls to Tower, MN Fortune Bay Casino. Pick mode of transport at start: bicycle, ski or foot."

    I've always wanted to see the rest of the world.

    I figure my 40's are as good a time as any.

    power years. 20s would be great but i had too much going on in my 20s to make anything like that a reality. 30s could be great but i'm still building my career. 40s will be tits. cash money, established career, hot bitches, and a cocaine ready pinky nail.

    i love watching that on tv each time it's aired. there's always some super old dude at the end of the race who's body is going crazy and he still fucking finishes. makes me proud for them and very ashamed of myself.

    My problem would be the swimming. I know I could will myself through the running and biking, but being in the water that long would kill me.

    i'm the opposite. i know the swimming and biking are doable for me. it's the running that would kill me.
