Marathon Man

Samson later this year plans to go out and test his mettle.

Later this year, Marlins President David Samson will compete in the Ford Ironman World Championship, which consists of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. The Oct. 21 event in Hawaii attracts more than 1,800 athletes.

Through his participation, Samson, 38, will raise money and awareness for the Florida Marlins Community Foundation and the Challenged Athletes Foundation....

Not being a fan of Samson there has to be some snarky comment I could make.  But since he is doing it not only for himself but also for charity - I can't think of anything.

Aside: The World Series also begins on Oct. 21.
