Team N3kk1d’s Shawn Green did what any ordinary human would do for his 40th birthday: swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run a FULL MARATHON of 26.2 miles… all in the same day. If this is your idea of a good time, look no further than Grand Rapids’ own Michigan Titanium. Shawn completed all three legs of the ironman triathlon and celebrated with an ironman-sized party at The Mitten Brewing Company. w007!!11!1!!!
The Mitten is a fresh face on the micro-brewery scene, located on the northeast side of Grand Rapids

As Julie pointed out: an Ironman is not just one race… it is the culmination of all of the training and races before it

Beer, delicious pizza, hummous and pita… how can you go wrong with this?
Homemade pie for dessert, too!
Not a bad way to spend a 40th… happy birthday, Shawn!
