Incredible Wheelchair-Bound Man Completes Ironman Triathlon Alongside His Twin Brother

What a fantastic story!

"The twins, who call themselves Team Tvilling ("Team Twin" in Danish), were born three months premature and weighing only 2.6 pounds each in 1980. Peder, who suffered a lack of oxygen that caused severe cerebral palsy, has been confined to a wheelchair for all of his life. This physical handicap hasn't held him back, however, as he's participated in a variety of marathons and races with Steen, with those efforts finally culminating in the spectacular completion of the extremely demanding Ironman."

This is a really interesting article from +The New York Times on what 2000 calories looks like in different food chains across the US.

In some cases one meal of a burger, chips and a drink total 2000 calories alone (the recommended daily intake for the average female!).

We're privileged to have a very special guest post from triathlete Kelly Van Der Ton this week on her recent bicycle crash and how it has both forced her to miss Ironman 70.3 this January, but also to rest and spend time with her family.

Read Kelly's story and see her recovery here: http://www.tfn.uk.com/blog/forecedrest/
