Both require a great deal of time and energy but how do they relate to having a Brain Injury? Some people w/a Brain Injury also have physical limitations, some w/prostetics or other assitive devices, so how can they be an "Ironman"? EASY PEEZY! When one stops and asks themselves: How can you PROgress, if you continually regress to past thinking, behaviors and beLIEfs? Join Kevin and the Marvelous Maggie tonight as Kevin shares yet another unique perspective on how We can (and need to) become our own Ironman (or variation thereof). ;-) Call in LIVE @424.243.9540 or listen in @7pm Pacific!

Boulder endurance athlete Billy Edwards joins us the night before the Boulder Ironman Triathlon. Billy should be asleep right now but is taking 15 minutes to chat with us about tomorrow's event.
One of the world's most popular triathlon destinations, this beloved Rocky Mountain town now hosts a full-distance race. Welcome to IRONMAN Boulder.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for world-class triathletes. The city's health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment means it's destined to be an instant favorite on the IRONMAN circuit.
Boulder's robust downtown, with its famous pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall and idyllic Boulder Creek, will provide families and fans an unforgettable race day as they wait for their loved ones to cross the finish line. From five-star hotels to James Beard award-winning restaurants, Boulder's hotel and dining options are some of the best in the nation.
The race will start at the Boulder Reservoir with a single loop 2.4-mile swim. Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful 112-mile one-loop bike course in the city's vast open space. The bike will loop around Carter Lake and along the eastern plains of the Front Range before ending downtown at Boulder High School.
The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.
The Ironman World Championship in Kona is brutal, imagine how difficult it would be if you were blind. Tina Ament, Competitor, blind since birth, just struck this event from her bucket along with 3 other Ironman events and 5 Boston Marathon finishes.
Her training partner and race guide Anne Thilges has completed in 40 Iron-distance triathlons and co-raced alongside Tina during the Kona world championship. They now will go on record as the first female blind athlete/guide to race the famed Kona Ironman World Championship. Kristina “Tina” Ament is the highest-ranked female in the physically challenged division among 28 All World Athlete Champions representing nine countries.
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.

Boulder endurance athlete Billy Edwards absolutely ROCKED the Boulder Ironman placing 8th overall (including the pros). It was no easy effort for the man who's placed so much focus on his cycling in recent years - at one point during the run Edwards thought he was going to have to drop out. But, Billy perservered, overcame his difficulties and finished in 9 hours 19minutes 40 seconds. An Ironman Triathlon is a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike race followed by a marathon run. More than 2,500 athletes from 33 different countries participated in the Boulder (CO) Ironman Triathlon held this past Sunday.
