Israman an inspirational experience for all involved

Pride and determination are two extremely powerful sentiments, and both were on full display in Friday’s Israman Negev Eilat, the country’s annual edition of the grueling Ironman competition.

Inspiration was definitely another operative word of the day, as that was the overriding feeling one was left with after watching more than 1,600 participants power through the tremendous challenge of completing an event that, for most people, would be classified as impossible.

For those unfamiliar with the format of the event, the Ironman is a long-distance triathlon race that combines 3.8 kilometers of swimming, followed by 180 kilometers of biking, concluding with a full-marathon, 42.2 km of running.
