“It all started with a dream many years ago. To be honest, the performance is the kind you dream of and it’s the motivation that gets you out the door to train,” Alexander said after breaking the Ironman world record. “Breaking the record is totally humbling … You race to be the best athlete you can be, and if you make history along the way, that’s awesome.
