Oh, to be like Jordan.

I mentioned yesterday that I’m a huge fan of Jordan Rapp. Today, I came across this article on him and his path after a near-death biking accident in 2010. He is an enormous talent with an amazing spirit. He won Ironman Canada last year. It doesn’t look like he’ll be racing there this year. That makes me a little sad because the winners have this tradition of coming to the finish line late in the day to welcome in the folks like me who take all day to finish. I’d love to see him at my finish line sometime, but that won’t happen in Canada. Though he won’t be there, I’ll certainly be remembering how effortless he looked coming back into Penticton as he finished up his run. I’m pretty sure I’ll look just like that.Yep. Just like that.
