Aside from dancing around a lawsuit by Marvel Entertainment, this post is meant to spread the word about the Indoor Ironman Competition beginning Feb. 1 through the end of the month.
What better way to spend the days after the Super Bowl, recovering from all the juice and food intake, to shake off all the calories and pump up the adrenaline with a month long competition to see who has the most guts and glory to compete.
Central students and Recreation Center members will contend to see who can be the first to complete a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. There is a $25 entry fee and registration forms must be returned to the Recreation Center front desk by Saturday, Jan. 31.
All participants will receive a complimentary Indoor Ironman t-shirt, while the first three male and female contestants to complete all requirements will receive an Intramural Champions t-shirt as well. The first place male and female winners will receive both shirts and a pair of sunglasses.
Even better than a shirt and sunglasses is the bragging rights that come with being crowned “champion.” You can even wear you shirt and sunglasses while you brag to all of your friends. If you don’t have any friends, well you will now! Who doesn’t want to be friends with someone who wears shirts and sunglasses?
All joking aside, this month-long competition will certainly challenge anyone who participates and is the perfect excuse to get up, get physical, get the blood pumping and the muscles burning. Also, Marvel, please don’t sue me.
