Real Life Iron Men and Women

triathlonAs many of you know I’m nuts about George Clooney and George Clooney playing the character of Batman, who is my favourite superhero, was just a dream come true.

So, I imagine many of you think: Janette, wake up and smell the coffee, under no circumstances is GC going to knock on your door, sweep you off your feet, throw you in his Ferrari to live a life of fast cars, celebrity brunches and cocktail parties. And, deep down, I do know this is true. I might be a bit of a nutjob, but I’m not delusional.

Anyway, I’m sure my love affair with George will last a lifetime but while I continue to wait for that elusive knock on the door, I have a real life superman in my life. Last weekend while I was drinking beer and sunbathing, he competed in an Ironman Triathlon which consisted of a 2.4 mile swim followed by a 112 mile bike ride and then finished with a 26.2 mile run. OMG, can you imagine, I feel exhausted just typing the information. Anyway, after only 13 hours and 11 minutes of swimming, cycling and jogging he finished.  I am in absolute awe and not only did he do it on his birthday he paid nearly £300 to enter the competition.

If you want to do a triathlon, then check out Málaga’s organization ICAN   Triathlon or perhaps reading about sport is more your cup of tea.
