Expedition Impossible; The Mansuit

Expedition Impossible premieres tomorrow night - here is a preview clip of the first 14 minutes, enjoy!


In other news....The other day, the Metrosexual Triathlete, Patrick of The Road, told me it was time to put on my mansuit and sign up (with him) for the 2012 Oceanside 70.3. Instead I changed my blog to reflect happier, more springlike colors (I told him my mansuit was at the cleaners). What do you think? Anyways, $300 for the race, plus airfare, plus food and lodging, plus, plus, get the idea. I'd rather he compiled us a Dream Ironman and we completed it for free. Or maybe an ultra? We could run down to Oceanside and visit ChrisK, he could get us Starbucks - unless it's raining or does he run in the rain now?, I can't remember, he's moved over to the fluorescent lime green non-mansuit world as well. (By the way, Chris has asked that people no longer be nice to him, but actually tell it to him like he deserves. Sounds like fun for the whole family.) But...Patrick registered last night, so now it's on me. He even found me a 24 hour gym where I could swim close to home. All I need is a boatload of cash and we're good to go. Hmmm...


  1. I heard the WTC wants to give nice raises to all their personnel this year....
    For that reason alone, I think you should help out the economy and spread the wealth.

  2. I *heart* the new springy motif! I did my first tri last night! I, too, was remembering that Dream Triathlon post and decided to try out MY neighborhood course…even did a video ;-)

    C'mon, Kovas…we ALL want to see your mansuit…even if it's dirty! Do it!

  3. Just as I launched a fundraiser to support my quest for a mansion at the Jersey shore, so too should you launch a fundraiser for your race. All good causes, don't you think?

  4. Love the new look! And, yes, you should definitely sign up (easy for me to say!) :)

  5. So will you show us pictures of you in your mansuit? I said this to Patrick - the next step doesn't have to be a longer race, it could be trying to PR at a race you have done, it can be doing a race that is more challenging, or something you haven't done before...SO you can wear your mansuit at any of those pursuits as well. Just not if you sit on the couch and eat cheetos. :)

    I quit being nice to Chris K a long time ago ;)

  6. Get a paper route for some extra cash - you get up early enough. Do I have to figure out everything?

  7. Love the new look of the blog!

    Yes, sign up. You'll be addicted and one of the crazies like us! :)

  8. I like the new look! green is the color of hope did you know that

    I am set for this new looks great!

    buy a lottery ticket...maybe it is your lucky day and then sign up!!

  9. BLECH! no way. Leave the man suit at the cleaners.

  10. I hope you sign up for it. Oceanside is lovely that time of year. Actually, it's lovely any time of the year.

  11. Yep, the pics I saw from Oceanside this year were post card quality. I don't know if you guys frequent BT, but if you do, check out Doug's race report.

    He is so fast I don't know why he even talks to me :-)

  12. Holy shit is a 70.3 really up to $300?

    You new look makes me feel like I am running in the dew covered grass on a crisp spring morning, barefoot of course (-:

  13. Based on the fact that your blog is still very green I'm going to guess your mansuit is still at the cleaners?

  14. *love* the new background~! wOOt!

    and now i want some wine. hmmm
    it is 4:30 after all.
