Hello, revolucion family!
A huge “thank you” for all the love and support over the past seven months as I trained for the Iron Man. It was an epic race!
Swim (2.4 miles)
The race-morning energy was electric. 1,890 Iron Man competitors from 61 countries were abuzz in the transition area doing last minute checks on bikes and double checking bike and swim transition bags. (I think I checked my bike transition bag ten times, to make sure I had socks for my ride.) One by one we made our way to the start, lining up according to our predicted swim time. I was shooting for a 1:10-minute swim, putting me in the top 1/3 of the pack.
This April, revolucion founder Jason Leon will compete in the world's most difficult one-day race, the Iron Man, in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa. He'll swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and then run a full 26.2-mile marathon... all in a single day.
We sat down with them to ask about the race, his training and what drove him to take on such an audacious goal.
Next April, revolucion founder Jason Leon will be competing in the world’s most difficult one-day race, the Iron Man, in Nelson Mandela Bay. The race — a mind-boggling 2.4-mile ocean swim, 112-mile bike ride and a full 26.2-mile marathon — is about endurance, perseverance and being a part of something bigger than yourself.
