Behind the scenes of the Ironman Virtual Club. In these times, I believe it's more important than ever that we as athletes put ourselves in the background and instead put community and comradeship first. There couldn't have been a better proof for the power of the Ironman family than this race. We've had more than 11,000 participants for Ironman VR1, all united in the goal to face that challenging course together and support one another- no matter the circumstances. I'm really proud of being a part of it. #strongertogether #AnywhereIsPossible # IronmanVR1 | 🎥credits @ julia.t.lange
