    I've started following the sport of triathlons recently. I thought this was pretty interesting. Hines Ward is going to enter the Ironman in Kona this fall.

    This should be interesting to follow. They're going to make a documentary on his training program.

    Next up for Kona is Rudy!

    http://greatideas.people.com/2015/08/14/sean-astin-competes-in-ironman-triathlon/

    Sean Astin has made the winning play on the football field as Rudy and traveled across Middle Earth as Sam in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but his greatest athletic accomplishment will soon happen off the big screen as he competes in the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship presented by GoPro in October.

    “This is an extraordinary challenge, and I like the idea that I am capable of leading an extraordinary life,” he tells PEOPLE of why he chose to compete in the 140-mile triathalon.

    Astin, 44, already has 10 marathons under his belt, and completed a half-Ironman in July in 7 hours and 25 minutes.

    “It was a real confidence builder,” says the Goonies star of finishing that race under the allotted time.

    Astin has been training since June for the upcoming fitness challenge, which requires swimming, biking and running over exactly 140.6 miles in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
