Robert Rooney starting off on the 56-mile bike portion of the Tongass ToughMan triathlon, shortly after completing a 1.2 mile swim. Robert completed two stages of the triathlon, while Jason Rooney handled a 15-mile run. "Although this year was unofficial and mostly self-supported, we learned a lot and are excited to make improvements for next year," reads a July 4 Facebook post on the Tongass ToughMan page. "We hope to have a full-blown event in 2021 and look forward to creating a platform and atmosphere where all are welcome and encouraged to challenge themselves."
