Sometimes, just for fun, we use Google to search for Ironman in the news. Normally, that turns up news articles related to those Ironman triathlons, where exceptionally fit athletes run marathons, swim and bike for miles all in a one-day race.

Don't worry. We won't let the super hero thing go to our heads. We're really just mild-mannered fortune tellers. Except for the people of Tempe. You can get started on scrubbing those beaches next....
