You know Fast Money trader Guy Adami as a top trader but did you know he's also a top athlete?
As part of a broad effort to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Guy Adami will be among the many athletes competing in the IronMan US Championship on August 11, 2012.
It's a big story - one we've been telling you about on Fast Money in our regular Living Well Vignettes.
And it appears the New York Timesfinds the story compelling, too. They wrote all about it in Sunday's paper. Here's an excerpt.
Guy Adami has experienced the thrill of trading millions of dollars in precious metals in a matter of seconds on Wall Street in the 1990s, and analyzing the financial crisis each afternoon as a panelist on the live CNBC program “Fast Money.”
But he says none of those experiences compare with the rush he felt on a sun-dappled Sunday morning in late May in Red Bank, N.J., when he crossed the finish line of his first triathlon. It was at a so-called sprint distance — a half-mile swim, followed by a 13-mile bike ride and then a 3.2-mile run — which Mr. Adami, 48, completed in just under two hours, finishing 116th in a field of 160.
