Over the past weekend, I watched the last 30 minutes of the Iron Man World Championships in Hawaii and was quite impressed! The race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and marathon 26.2 mile run. Every contestant whether an elite athlete or a first time triathlete had a story. What was most impressive to me were the people who were over 70 years old and were competing to the end while stumbling to the ground and then picking themselves back up to make it to the end!! These people were on their 20 something iron man and still going at it! One lady didn't learn to swim until she was 50 and has completed multiple Ironman's. A young girl was over 300 pounds a short time ago and was now 250 and finished her first Ironman which she never would have imagined.
Whatever your story or your situation may be, do it for you and it is NEVER to late to start and challenge yourself!! Be inspired to be a better you and if there is something you have always wanted to do, DO IT and don't be afraid to try!!
