December 19, 2013: Typically when one imagines someone crossing the finish line of an Ironman triathlon, they do not imagine a 6 foot 4 inch, 285 pound man. However, that describes former NFL defensive lineman Don Davey.  At least it describes him several years ago, finishing his first race after retiring from professional football.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Davey describes how he told physical therapist/certified athletic trainer Mike Ryan of the Jacksonville Jaguars that he would compete in an Ironman within five years of retirement from football.  With the help of Ryan, Davey has dramatically reshaped his body, and reconfigured vigorous training regimens around football-related injuries.
