Judge John Hodgman Episode 19: The Ironman Trial-Athlon

| 16 comments

Should an endurance event enthusiast (and former couch potato) be allowed to participate in an Ironman Triathlon against the wishes of his wife?

Tom turned his life around several years ago, losing 80 pounds through running and other exercise. He's since participated in a marathon and a half-Ironman triathlon, but dreams of seeing his addiction to extreme physical fitness through to a capstone event, the full Ironman triathlon.

His wife Veronique is supportive of his exercise regime as it stands and approves of Tom participating in less strenuous events. However, she feels the Ironman is just too risky for him to attempt.

Our first ever sports-and-exercise-related case: how will Judge Hodgman rule?
