Thad Beatty, guitarist for country stars Sugarland, wants to inspire an to be inspired. Over the past couple of years, Thad has gone from a musician on the road who was 75 lbs. overweight, eating poorly and simply unhealthy. Then he decided to make a change.
In the last year, apart from becoming an Ironman, Thad has become a part of the Newton family. He's also a member of the Ironman Foundation - Newton Running Ambassador Triathlon Team as well as an ambassador for Ironman's Kona Inspired.
The Kona Inspired program provides seven slots for the Ironman World Championship driven by aspirational stories and voted on by the triathlon community. The program returns this year as a global opportunity with the support of the Ironman Foundation.
