At first I didn't quite understand. Then I got the jist. Then I wikipedia'ed these guys. Holy shit - that is inspirational. What an effort. Good job, I've got a job interview in two hours and this pumped me up for it. Thanks.
PS. The guy graduated from university too. Fucking hell. I don't think I'd have had that kind of fortitude. Amazing.
EDIT: 238 triathlons! 68 marathons! SIX ironman distances. Freakish determination and endevour.
