“Coming from basketball, I carried a little bit more fat and a bit more muscle bulk. Olympic-distance racing, my body didn’t change a whole lot, I maybe dropped a little bit of muscle. And then the longer I’ve gone [in triathlon] it seemed [the more] my muscles have become really lean. So anything that was not 100 percent needed just seems to have been gotten rid of. I feel like the more Ironmans I do, the leaner I’ve become, and it’s become kind of a battle to sort of keep the weight on throughout the year. Ironman really seems to just strip you down to bones and only the muscle bulk that’s absolutely necessary to get you through the race.”
