Back in June, I was at the Downtown Des Moines' Farmer's Market and I swear, every man I saw had a man bun and I thought was Jason Momoa. I kid you not, I followed a few of these burly men to confirm. I, also, noticed a lot of very muscular women, too. Turns out, the Des Moines Iron Man 70.3 competition was in town!
It went very well. Technically, it was a half Iron Man with a 70.3 mile course. An Iron Man competition is a triatholon that involves running, cycling and swimming.
Well, next year... the Iron Man will be a full Iron Man that will cover running, cycling and swimming 140 miles! The course will go through Des Moines and other parts of Polk County, as well as surrounding areas in Dallas county, too.
The full Iron Man will be June 12, 2022. Registration opens November 1.
