For the last seven weeks, we've followed Kris Gethin's every set, rep, and step in his hybrid bodybuilder-and-triathlon video series Man of Iron. But we're no longer the only ones! Just days before he undertakes his biggest challenge yet, a half Ironman, Gethin went on the local news in the northern Idaho town of Coeur d'Alene to talk about his training, his mad race-prep experiments—no AC at home, anyone?—and the unique charity you may not have known he's been helping all along.
