I’m an adventure-seeker who tends to push myself pretty hard in all facets of my life. Which is why I set out to accomplish arguably the most grueling feat in all of sports, the Ironman! After blogging about it for almost a year, I completed Ironman Arizona on November 21, 2010. I then went on to finish my second Ironman seven months later (Coeur d’Alene, June 2011). Now I’m tackling arguably the toughest Ironman in North America, Ironman St. George, on May 5, 2012.
I write a blog about the daily rigors of Ironman training and triathlon racing. My intention is to offer a life blueprint for those considering an Ironman or any kind of triathlon, those already training for one, or those seeking inspiration for their own personal version of an Ironman. I describe in detail all the good times and the bad, along with the joys and frustrations of life that occur along the way.
Ultimately, my goal is to present this blog as a gift to my future children (whenever my wife and I have them!). I hope it becomes a manifesto for setting huge goals and pursuing them passionately.
I also hope you’ll join me on this journey and share your own thoughts, wisdom and humor.
