Ironjim? The guy behind the cool name!!
Ironjim was given to me years ago by a friend when I was training for Ironman Canada. It stuck! My real name is Jim Von Hipple and I am a chiropractor that lives in Murrieta California. The best way to describe me is I am a guy who really loves ultra-endurance sports that got burned out and gained a bunch of weight and now am confronting my demons and getting the fire again. My weight has always been an issue but literally since turning 35 (over 10 years ago) it has been impossible for me to get my weight off! The real truth is diet discipline! I can put in more mileage training than any mortal man I know but I love to eat, drink and be merry!
