The Vine Man (Iron Man) Triathlon in Sonoma

Okay so I'm thinking about doing this.  It is beyond scary.  I have always said I didn't want to do a triathlon because I hate swimming in the open ocean, especially in water that isn't clear.  Damn Steven Spielberg and that effin shark!  Well on Sunday night I met a girl who had completed an Iron Man in Sonoma.  She told me that the swimming portion of that one is in a river.  Hearing this filled me with both elation and terror.

For those of you who don't know, an Iron Man is a triathlon where you swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run 26.2 miles.  A shiver ran through me just typing that.

Am I crazy?  I have just over 6 1/2 months that I could train do do this.  Have any of you ever done an Iron man? Thoughts?
