Completing an Ironman – Why Bother?

An Ironman involves:

🏊 Swimming 3.6km
🚴 Cycling 180km
🏃 Running 42km (a marathon) 

and takes anywhere from 8 hours (7h51 world record) to 17 hours (the cut-off time).

But the race is only the tip of the iceberg.

Most definitely the "tip of the iceberg"

Friends and family will see race day and the glorious moment that you complete the challenge, but they won’t see the year of training that goes into it.
