For those who may not be familiar with what IronMan, it is a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), consisting of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run, raced in that order. Back to back. Yes, on the very same day within max 17 hours. For someone to say “Yes, I can do this” is still a mystery to me. It sounds like such a huge and unbelievable task to take on.
