Ben Hoffman  achieved his perfect race at the Ironman World Championships in Kona this year, earning him second overall and top American going 8:19:23.

Hoffman, who went pro in 2007, is a four-time Ironman champion and has raced Kona five times, moving up the ranks from 56th in ’09, 42nd in ’10, DNF in ’11, 15th last year and finally second this year.

Ben went into the race largely under the radar, and on this show we hear the “secrets” that went into Ben’s awesome day, including how he’s tweaked his diet this year, his training, the mental game/confidence, race day strategies, and much more.

Plus we go inside Ben’s decision to race IM Florida on Nov. 1, just three weeks after Kona.
