In just over twelve hours — about the same amount of time it takes to get up to La Birreria — New York’s own Joe Bastianich, 43, completed the unthinkably challenging Iron Man World Championship in Kona, calling it “a day that will change my life forever … very emotional!” Bastianich tweets that the swimming portion slowed him down a bit, but according to the records, Joey B. did good!
