The Ironman competition is quite a physical challenge. Competitors must complete a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run (full marathon). The challenges must be completed consecutively and must be finished within 17 hours.
Ted Spiker committed to Ironman. He knew that one second past that 17-hour limit would result in a Did Not Finish (DNF) classification.
While Ted wasn’t a strong athlete in his younger years, he worked hard to reach Ironman. Gradient competitions and training prepared him for the event.
Listen as Ted joins host Lisa Davis to share his Ironman journey.
