Headline Says: Mayor is 1/100th of an Ironman, But is He?

On 13 April 2007, the Arizona Republic reported that Tempe mayor, Hugh Hallman, is 1/100th of an ironman.

   "Instead of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile 
    run, the mayor's challenge is a 24-yard swim in Tempe Town Lake, 
    a 1.12-mile bike ride and 0.26-mile run."
