Ryan's Song

This came out not so very long ago for me, but probably long, long before the collective consciousness of this group ever began collating. Lines from 1:07 into the piece popped into my head immediately when I asked RM why he kept going at Eagleman.

OK, I feel I have to say something at this point. Ryan is not a country song for f**k's sake. He had a hard day. He is all sad about it. Too bad. If ironman was easy Oprah would have done one by now. Let it stand as a hard thing to do that people fail at sometimes. I don't think we should take that away. Ryan screwed up his calories or sodium or something. Yes this is rocket-science. Everybody gets burned with this untill they experiment. Ryan stepped out of his comfort zone and that is beautiful. That is the most exciting thing about endurance sports. Running a 5K, "real fast" does not compare to a full on all day effort. Nor are the rewards as great. I say great job, but it is always the effort that counts. Not really the stats. And thanks for letting me follow along with your reports. I read them all. Besides, I wouldn't bet on Ryan going slow next time.
