Like most of us, Nick decided to travel far distances this thanksgiving weekend. 320 miles to be precise. But unlike, most of us, Nick decided to do this swimming, biking, and running his way to his goal of finishing the 320 mile Ultraman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
Ultraman athletes set out to complete 320 miles in 3 days of competition. On Day 1, athletes swam 6.2 miles and biked 90 miles under mostly sunny skis. On Day 2 those conditions took a turn for the worse, as the athletes rode 271.4 miles along the east side of the island under continuous rain and gusty winds , which made for some treacherous roads and difficult headway. And on Day 3, athletes had to complete a DOUBLE marathon 52.4 miles to conclude this most demanding physical challenge.
Nick Logan, of Norwalk, Connecticut finished the race in 25 hours 40 minutes, over the 3 days, for 6th overall and 1st american finisher. Congratulations to Nick on this incredible race and personal achievement. Time for some well deserved relaxation and recovery.
We need to hydrate. But how can you hydrate and replace electrolytes without the harmful additives like sweeteners and artificial flavoring common in sports drinks that are harsh on your stomach?
