On Saturday, my dad did his first full Iron Man at the age of 60. I knew Iron Man races were crazy but trying to do a photo project at one really put it in perspective. I’m in relatively decent shape and I’m 26 and I almost died just trying to photograph this race, much less do it. I am really excited about this project I shot of the race. I am so incredibly proud of my dad. He ended up placing third in his Age group despite claiming that he “just wanted to finish”.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Iron Man races, they consist of a 2.4 mile swim in open water, a 112 mile bike ride and a full 26.2 mile marathon to finish everything off.
