Jeff Conine isn't exactly retired. No, he's training for the 140.6 miles of the Ford Ironman World Championship — 112 biking, 2.4 swimming and 26.2 running. The event will take place Oct. 11 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
According to a press release announcing Conine's plans, his 3,081 career total bases amounted to 277,290 feet worth of running. The Ironman journey consists of 742,368 feet — more than three times his major-league output.
Conine, who turns 42 on June 27, fell 18 hits short of 2,000 in his 17-year career.
