So Proud of My Brother, the Ironman

My brother qualified in August for the Ironman World Championships that took place in Hawaii last week. This is like the Wimbledon of tennis, the World Series of baseball, and the Ironman is for triathlons. It is 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and finish it off with running a marathon, 26 miles. The best of the best triathletes come from all over the world to compete in this grueling race, and my brother was one of them! It was 95 degrees and sunny, and to think of having to race for over 10 hours!! Way to go, Corey!
