We caught up with our friend Chet “The Jet” Blanton recently who is one of the top “ultra” distance triathletes in the world. Chet calls himself just a normal guy–who is getting ready to do the Triple Deca Ironman Triathlon in Italy. What is a triple IronMan triathlon? 30 full length IronMans in 30 days! That is “only” 72 miles of swimming, 3,360 miles of cycling, and 782 miles of running. While the show sounds like something geared towards the hardcore athlete crowd–not really. Chet’s mission and life inspires thousands to be physically active from his high school cross country team to seniors maintaining an active lifestyle. Good luck in Italy Chet! May the force of fitness be with you-have FUN!
