WKPZ Attorney Halliburton Completes Triathlon
On October 10, 2020, WKPZ attorney, Cory Halliburton, completed a Texas Hill Country Triathlon. The 71.5-mile, 7-hour exercise was a self-designed 1.4-mile swim, 57-mile cycle and 13.1-mile run. The official IronMan event that he registered to take on cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so Mr. Halliburton pivoted and just made his own.
“The pandemic offered a unique opportunity to train for a IronMan 70.3 Triathlon scheduled for October 18th in Waco, Texas,” Halliburton noted, “and with my kids schooling, and me working remotely, I was able to arrange for lake swims, bike rides and runs without disrupting my family or my law practice.” He added, “When IronMan cancelled its event, I decided to make the event my own out of Llano, Texas where I was raised, through Fredericksburg where I was born, and back. The course design was very difficult, through the heart of the Texas Hill Country and in 100-degree heat for the half-marathon run. I am pleased with my effort, and I achieved all goals that I set for this challenge.”
Mr. Halliburton is no stranger to physical feats. He’s completed multiple ultra-marathons, marathons and long-distance obstacle events. In 2013 he ran the Cowtown Marathon in cowboy boots and blue jeans (not recommended), and in 2017 he “ran the year,” logging 2,017 miles at an overall pace of 7:50 between January 1st and December 16th (that’s an average of 5.8 miles a day for 350 days consecutive).
Mr. Halliburton joined WKPZ in 2008. His bio may be reviewed here.
