Scenes from the Hermosa Beach Ironman July 4th, 2021

The annual Hermosa Beach July 4 tradition that is the Ironman competition attracted upwards of over 500 people Sunday, as people seemed eager to get back out and party after a year or more of being cooped up inside. 

The rules: run a mile, paddle a mile and then down a six-pack. You know what comes next.
