IRONMAN OF THE DAY
NAME: Mike Grady
AGE GROUP: M45-49
OCCUPATION: Owner, Mulherin Lumber Company
EXPERIENCE: Grady has competed in both ESi Ironman events in Augusta. He’s had to scale back this year’s training time after caring for a sick family member, which means he’ll get some help this year.
GAME PLAN: Grady will be a part of a relay team and will handle the running portion of the event. Becky Hobbs will take care of the swimming to start the race, and Justin Eppenbrock will do the cycling.
“It’ll be a new experience for me,” Grady said. “We think we can get on the relay podium. We’re going for it.”
