Ramsay completed the intense swim, cycle and run race in about 14 hours. The celebrity chef and MasterChef host is no stranger to triathlons; he has been training for years. Competing in Hawaii’s Ironman race was a life goal for Ramsay, and he previously expressed his desire to get an Ironman tattoo if and when he finally completed the big race. The tattoo would reportedly be a small “IM” on his ankle.
“It’s the only time I’m ever going to have a tattoo, is when I complete Kona,” Ramsay has said.
In an interview, Ramsay said that he does Ironman to relax.

Ramsay says he enjoys the long stretches of personal time that accompany a marathon, saying he finds Ironman races relaxing.
“I do it to relax, cause its time to myself. It’s time where I can have quality time… For me, the whole Ironman phenomenon, in terms of my training, has given me so much more quality time to myself. So, it’s a dream,” Ramsay explained.
