You've probably seen the stickers on the rear windows of cars and even on the bumpers.

Some say 13.1 or 26.2, broadcasting to the world that they have completed a Half-Marathon or Marathon in recent times.  Still a few others have a 70.3 or a 140.6, indicative of their success in a Half-Ironman or an Ironman distance.  This writer even has one that says 0.0 for obvious reasons.

Bet you haven't seen one that says 281.2.  What? A 281.2 must represent the distance covered in a Double Ironman.  For the common person, that includes a 4.8-mile swim, a bike ride covering 224 miles and a double marathon, which is 52.4  miles.
