Lardman to Ironman

Brand New Day is happy to provide it's support for "Lardman"..

After turning 40 at the end of 2005, the usual mid-life crisis came along.  The forgotten promise, being overweight and having done no serious exercise, with the exception of social rugby for many years meant that it was time to get in shape.  Best get thru Christmas though and drink all that booze that was left over from the 40th party beforehand...

Inspired by Run to Heal and the 

Kelloggs Duathlon

 series, which "Lardman" helped run including; being responsible for collating all the success stories that such great events generate, the guilt of being over weight and un-fit prompted immediate action...

Can this 40 year old 105kg lardman (weight on 1st Feb 2006) complete the 

Taupo Ironman 2007

 on March 3rd 2007 having never run a 

real Duathlon

, Triathlon or any multi sport event before...

The Challenge is to beat Gordon Haller's winning time of 11 hours, 46 minutes and 58 seconds, recorded in Hawaii in 1978 - the first ever ironman event...

Is it possible in 57 weeks to get this "lardman" into shape? Only time will tell...
