BROOKINGS – It’s the endurance of the sport and others like it that appeals to Kurt Pickard. It’s a chance to prove your mettle, to see what you can do, he said.

Pickard, a salesman at his family’s Volga-based crop insurance company, Pickard Crop Services, had his chance during the Aug. 3 Ironman competition in Boulder, Colo. The three-part endurance race had participants swim 2.4 miles starting at the Boulder Reservoir, bike 112 miles on a one-loop bike course and run a marathon.

It took him 14 hours and 9 minutes to finish.
