After knocking out a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run in a single day, Chris Nikic crossed the finish line in just under 17 hours on Sunday.
Doctors told Nikic he wasn’t capable of finishing the race, but he did with plenty of support, displaying something as inspiring as the power of the human spirit.
