Finishing 84 out 236 participants in his age group, in an impressive overall time of 11:01:56, Jeremiah completed his first Ironman triathlon on November 1, 2008 in Panama City Beach Florida.

The 10th annual Ford Ironman Florida saw a total of 2,200 participants, who like Jeremiah, spent the better part of a year, often training 30-40 hours per week to reach their goal of completing this event.

To this writer’s knowledge, Jeremiah may be the first Iota Brother to complete a full length Ironman, comprised of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike course, and a full 26.2 mile marathon.

Please extend your congratulations to Jeremiah! He’ll be at Homecoming, less than a week since his big race.

Great job Miah!
