TT094: Zach Boivin’s Inspirational Journey From 330 Pounds To An Ironman


Zach Boivin went to watch a friend race Ironman Lake Placid in 2015.  At the time he weighed 330 pounds and was not active.  He was inspired watching the finishers that night and the next day he decided he was going to do a triathlon.  

He thought all triathlons were Ironman distance. Fortunately, he realized there were shorter races and he signed up for Ironman 70.3 Syracuse the following year.  In 2017 he attempted his first Ironman at Lake Placid.

This is his life changing journey that starts with running his first step and then two years later hearing Mike Reilly say “You Are An Ironman!”
