  • Mullins has great first Ironman

     Things couldn’t have gone much better for Todd Mullins in his first Ironman competition Sunday.

    Mullins, 40, of Crestwood, completed the 2.4 mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run in 12 hours, 12 minutes and 40 seconds.

    “That was about an hour faster than my goal,” Mullins said. “My first goal was to simply finish. I had calculated out about a 13- or 14-hour finish so I am very happy with it. The cooler weather really helped.”
