    Like a lot of things for people who like to test themselves, the Louisville Ironman competition was simply there for Todd Mullins.

    “Why I am doing this is a really good question,” Mullins said. “I think it’s probably the challenge of it, just to see if I can do it. I have watched it for years and now it is right here. I guess I just decided I couldn’t let it pass without trying it.”
