My Brother is an Ironman
My brother is an IRONMAN.
For those of you unfamiliar with what exactly that means, an Ironman Triathlon competition consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 marathon distance run; all to be completed in the allotted 17 hour time limit. Yes, it’s that insane.
It was absolutely incredible to watch. I’m not a very emotional person, but each time I’d see my brother zip by on the bike, or run in the marathon I would tear up because it was such an awesome experience to witness. I had the lucky fortune to run with him at mile 13 to see how he was doing, and then again at mile 23; probably one of the highlights of my lifetime so far.
Keep pushing yourself to the limit, and craving what you love –
