Sharing an Ultra experience
For father and daughter, endurance races are a walk in the park. So now it’s on to the Ultraman event.
Tomorrow, while the rest of us recover from our Thanksgiving feasts, Kathy Laska, 38, and her dad, Dave Wilson,65, will be doing a 6.2-mile ocean swim, followed by a 90-mile bike ride up a volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. The next day, they’ll do a 171-mile ride with a vertical climb of 8,600 feet. The third day is a double marathon: they’ll run 52.4 miles. It’s the Ultraman World Championships, and only 38 people worldwide will compete.
