Team GSF Conquers Ironman FranceJuly 26, 2011 by Victoria Strong The athletes involved with Team GSF are amazing! We are continually humbled by what they accomplish and that they are doing it for the SMA cause.
David Price is a college friend of Bill's. You may remember he competed in a triathlon last year for Team GSF in honor of Gwendolyn. He blew us away last year but...boy did he kick it up a notch. This year David entered the Ironman France -- an incredibly challenging course with bike trails winding through steep mountain roads, running through Nice, and swimming through the Cote d'Azur -- okay the last part sounds lovely. And just in case you aren't sure exactly what an Ironman entails, it consists of of a 2.4-mile (3.86km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25km) bike and a marathon 26.2miles (42.195km) run, raced in that order and without a break. And David did it! He completed every step. It was grueling, but he never gave up.
David has now raised over $5,000 for Team GSF and we are so honored to have someone like him on our team! Thank you David for all you have done, for all the new people you have educated about SMA, and for all the hard work you have put in for our cause. David Price -- YOU are an Ironman!
