Yes Theory: The 12-Hour Race That Almost Killed Me...


Published on: Sunday, June 2, 2019

The 12-Hour Race That Almost Killed Me...

Matt takes on one of the toughest endurance events on the entire planet, the Ironman. The Ironman consists of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run, raced in that order and without a break.

Thank you to Andreas Hem, the best filmmaker we've ever met. He filmed a lot of the footage you see here. You can find him on his incredible YouTube channel

    I couldnโ€™t hold back my tears throughout the pep talk Matt received prior to the Ironman marathon. I also teared up as his friends were by his side for the last mile, and I absolutely lost control when he passed the finish line and was reunited with his companions. Absolutely wholesome.
