In racer’s terms, DNF means “Do/Did Not Finish”. In Penguin terms, we translate that to “Do/Did Nothing Foolish”. Nancy made a very tough decision last night not to finish the Ironman Florida course.

I often find it tough enough to get my priorities straight when I’m NOT on a race course, after hours and hours of exertion. Sounds like she got them straight last night, though. Go over and give her a high-five, eh?



  1. Sometimes the DNF’s are the best learning tools we can have and allow ourselves to do. Onward and upward.. The great est of all victories.. is to be victorious over yourself.
