    The longest swim I’ve ever done is 1 mile. It takes me about 50 minutes to get that far at my current speed, and honestly, I usually just have to get home for dinner because I’m so hungry!

    Longest run is 26.2, though.

      Hunger is the biggest issue for me too!

    Congrats on the 2 miles, that is awesome! The longest I swam was half a mile for my triathlon.

    For biking, I have done 100 miles. I don’t feel the need to go a much longer distance than that LOL. We are working towards that again this summer.

      Thanks Lori! It felt good to do it, even though I knew I’d be able to. I don’t know why it took me so long to try it.

      The longest bike ride I’ve done is 55 miles (Reach the Beach). This summer is the Portland Century. I don’t know that I want to do more than 100 miles either…but Michael and I both like the idea of doing a biking vacation where we bike like 30-50 miles a day over the span of a week or something.

    The Big C is such a great show! I can’t wait to watch the second season.

    CONGRATS on your 2-mile swim!!

      Thank you Katie!

      So far I’m loving the show. I can’t wait for the next disc from Netflix!
