After a recent move to Arizona, Rabbi Leib Bolel will be toeing the starting line at Ironman Arizona on Nov. 20. The Ironman is a triathlon race totaling 140.6 miles consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and culminating in a marathon, 26.2-mile run, all within a 17-hour window.

However, even with several Ironman races under his belt, this year’s race will mean something more than the others. This year’s race will mark one year since he first began thinking of moving his family from Des Moines, Iowa, and relocating to Scottsdale.
