Mike Phillips recently won Ironman New Zealand, a breathtaking race where he came off the bike 18 minutes down on Starky - but continued to push all the way to the line, making the pass with only a couple of miles left to go. We hear about his epic battle, how it feels to chase a rival for the whole day, and the changes he’s made to his training that helped him to run an amazing 2.40.05 marathon. We also hear how the race can be a lesson to all of us in never giving up - Mike had a mechanical on the bike that required him to stop at the roadside for several minutes, and crashed at high speed at the half way point on the bike, breaking his hand!
