The Schriever Fitness Center on the Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado is giving its members the opportunity to complete 2.4-miles of swimming, 112-miles of biking and 26.2-miles of running, the distance of an Ironman, over the course of 28 days.
A few years ago, Schriever Sports and Fitness Manager, Seth Cannello, decided he could give Air Force members a taste of what Ironman triathlon competitors experience. He called the event the “Lazyman Triathlon,” but that name can be somewhat deceiving. Anyway you look at it, the miles don’t run, swim or bike themselves.
Competitors swim 2.4 miles, bicycle for 112 miles and run for 26.2 miles, and they have the entire month of February to complete the feat. Most however, say the days seem to fly by in a flash. After all, February is the shortest month of the year.
