We talk about the visual imagery, the music, the characters, the new scenes, how it compares to the 1991 animated classic, and Eugene tests his wits on an impromptu Disney Princess quiz!

How to be an Ironman (Ep. 16)

WJH? UNSCRIPTED – How to be an Ironman (Ep. 16)

It doesn’t seem humanly possible. Swim 2.4 miles in open water. Bike 112 miles–farther than the distance from Manhattan to Philadelphia. And then, assuming you have any energy left, run a full length marathon, 26.2 miles. All back to back to back, in less than 17 hours. That is the Ironman triathlon—widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. (And not to be confused with “Iron Man” Tony Stark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.) Today, I speak with three men who have all completed full length Ironman races and are training for more.

I ask them to do a bit of soul searching–while I do a bit of my own–as they talk about what drives their ambition to compete in this crazy race. They discuss what it takes to finish an Ironman and whether or not it’s fair to describe Ironman training as “selfish.” (Lots of shout outs to significant others in this episode!) We talk about training schedules, logistics, nutrition, and the mental challenges of completing a race. And in a twist, regular contributor—and triathlete in her own right—Jennifer Lee Koh joins us to reveal what it’s like to be an “Ironmate.”

Many thanks to Rob Koh, Jack Chen, and Sam Chung for taking the time to talk and reflect! Sam, Jack, and Rob are all part of the Trinity Endurance Club or TEC—a group that Sam started to build and foster a community of fitness fans. This was such a fun conversation, and I am so inspired by your stories!

Thanks for listening!
