Overall Winner

317 - IRONMAN© Chattanooga – Overall Winner Sam Long

To say I’m excited to see this happen is an understatement. I was there in Louisville last year where Sam placed Second overall.  I was able to be there in Chattanooga this year to see him take the tape and get his slot for Kona.  He threw down some amazing times and played it smart.  We talk about his race day tactics, strategies, and how he felt overall. It was a hot day in Chattanooga and this place feels like home.  Not only did he win the 70.3 there but now the full.  We talk about all the details of both in this episode.  Best of luck this winter Sam, and all the love brother.  It was great catching up with you!
