My IRONMAN Copenhagen story

In 2022, I headed over to Denmark to race IRONMAN Copenhagen. If you're not familiar with IRONMAN triathlons, they're a 3.9km swim, 180km bike and a marathon to finish. It wasn't my first full-distance triathlon but it was a big landmark for me. In this video, I'lll talk about my experience.
