I was recently inspired by the Olympics and since I have been doing swimming and track for two years now, I decided I am going to train for a big event. I either want to do a half-ironman (a super long triathalon) or a marathon. Anyone one who knows of them have any idea which would be better? Which is harder? Which has fewer people our age doing it? Also will it look good on an app? How good? (not that that's important I'm a female by the way if that makes any difference (it shouldn't

Which would be better or harder depends on your physical conditioning, stamina, interests, etc. Don't pick one because it would look good on an app. Of course it would look good on an app. But that shouldn't have any impact on which one you choose. Research what's really involved in training for each of these, see if there are any local competitions that have Web sites, and see if you can talk to people who have been involved in either to get a feel for what it's like.

A friend of mine did speed skating but I don't think it was worth it. She qualified but for some reason(health) didn't go. Her academics/grades were sacrifaced big time... 4.0 to 2.9 student. Because she was away so ofter for training/competitions she had to drop all but core classes and barely passes those. Also, she now has depression problems which she says are common among young athletes who are pushed too hard.
.... just some thoughts
