Grueling is how Dale Hill, of Bardstown, described his first ever Ironman triathlon event in Louisville.
“It’s a lot more than just three disciplines,” Hill said. In addition to swimming, cycling and running, there was nutrition and mental preparation to consider as the day approached.
“It was terrifying,” he said. “You’re nervous; scared. You’ve done the work and put the time in it.”
At 46, Hill said he decided to try Ironman while he was still in a condition to do so.
