Navy Seals very own Mitch Hall rocks Ironman Florida with custom Wheeltags

Mitch Hall raced hard in the 2008 Ironman Florida. Below is a clip from his upcoming interview in Triathlete Magazine.

"I feel it is an honor and priviledge to race while raising awareness to the Navy Special Ops (SEALS, SWCC, EOD, & Divers). Our efforts are now going into the third year and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Our largest effort was at this years Hawaii Ironman where we had two SEALS parachute into to the start and then complete the race.The Navy and SEAL teams have roots going all the way back to the very first IM in 78'."

"My best result to date is my rookie year in Hawaii where I posted a 9:39. My worst result but one I am very proud of is Hawaii 2006. I was sick the day before and should have never started. I finished in 13 or 14 hours and it was one of the hardest and disappointing days of my life."
