Local Residents Complete Ironman Triathlon
The competition involves a 2.4-mile swim, followed by a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. There were about 3,000 competitors and only a fraction of them were able to finish.
Diaz prepared for the race through a customized training routine at Arverne beach and the boardwalk. Diaz’s finishing time was 14 hours and 28 minutes. He plans to apply more focus to his mental preparation for the long-distance race and he hopes to compete again with a finishing time of 12 hours.
