Yesterday, my rockstar brother-in-law Glenn (he shares his blog with my sister & will do a race report there later this week) ran his first Iron Man in a stellar time. We were tracking him all day and we are all so proud of him for doing such an amazing job. Training for an Iron Man takes so much dedication and time — he’s been planning this thing for a year.
Glenn has been an athletic inspiration to me for several years. He knows that working hard is just that — hard — and you gotta do it. He’s shown me that someone can go from being a complete non-athlete to being an Iron Man in just a few years. When you think you can’t, think again. He came in at 10 hours and 55 minutes and his goal was to beat 11 hours. Wow! Great job Glenn!
*[late entry]–Glenn informs me that he was not a “non-athelete” and actually won an intramural basketball tournament in college. Well, he certainly could not have done an Iron Man in 10:55 back then!
