So not only did Dan Gallagher swim 2.4 miles, ride 112 and then run 26.2 while sporting his nifty City Coach tri tank, but in an effort to make sure he got his photo on the blog, he also posed with his adorable son, Ian.  Alright already Dan, you win.

Mudders & Grunters

Posted by:

How can you go wrong with a course description like this? "All runners compete on the same approximately 5 mile, single loop course.  The course is run off road, through as much muck, mud and water as we can find.  Some hills are included.  Multiple water crossings are present; depth is dependent on pre-race weather.  Course difficulty is ...
