I hope this inspires some kids

To get out and swim bike run 
This is the new Wheaties cereal box in honor of Chris McCormack, the 2010 Ford Ironman World Champion. He raced 140.6 miles to beat out 1800 other multi-sport athletes recently in Kona, Hawaii, in a time of 08:10:37. He is the first triathlete to ever be honored with a spot on the front of a Wheaties box.
If he inspires any child to get out their front door and swim, bike, or run, it will be a very wonderful thing. McCormack is just plain inspirational, and fast.
We came upon Chris McCormack being a fan himself at the Amgen Tour of California time trial in Los Angeles, California in May 2010. Chris McCormack and Kenny Rakestraw
