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.
