LG’s Wish List

  • Challenge Roth.  Top of my list for a reason.  200,000 spectators.  That means there’s lot’s of people yelling at me in German.  Who cares what they’re saying.  As long as they’re smiling and cheering.
  • Ironman Silverman 70.3. I’ve been interested in this one since it was a full ultra distance race. It’s a tough one, but the desert is a beautiful place.
  • Ironman Coure d’ Lane. Just a good, challenging race
  • Ironman Lanzarote. Another destination race.
  • Los Angeles Triathlon. My father did the Los Angeles marathon, so I want to do the triathlon.
  • Escape From Alcatraz. Notoriously tough swim. I want the challenge.
  • Pacific Palisades July 4th 10k
  • Silver State 508. 508 miles on a bike in one shot. What the hell! It’s a challenge.
