“I think of all those who have passed on in my life. Sometimes I do a particular group, like those lost in the military, or work friends, or family, etc. I think of each person, then I dedicate the race to those who are no longer with us. I am racing for them…” In this episode of Hilary Topper on Air, Hilary speaks with Brad Kirley, 9x Ironman, and finisher of fifty-two 70.3 triathlons. Hear about his triathlon journey and how his story made an impact on Hilary’s own triathlon experiences. Also learn more about Hilary’s endurance athlete team, WeREndurance.
