BLACKFOOT â€“Â Itâ€™s official â€“â€“ 33-year-old Josh Sorensen is an Iron Man. He completed the Arizona Iron Man in November with a time of 11 hours and 11 minutes.
Sorensenâ€™s road to Iron Man was quite unintentional. Five years ago Sorensen, who is an eighth grade social studies teacher at Snake River Junior High, sat bored along the edge of the Blackfoot Swimming Pool supervising students while they swam every Monday as part of an after-school program. One day, he decided to use the time and began swimming laps himself.
