Most of you probably know, but my name is Danny McBride, i am 27 years old, originally from Dundee, Scotland but currently living in Chattanooga, TN. I am married to Alison, and we are expecting our first child in early January, 2017.
As most of you know, while playing college soccer, I suffered what was considered a career ending injury. I had a compound fracture of my right leg, breaking both my tibia and fibula right above the ankle. After almost needing the bottom half of my right leg amputed, I was lucky enough to escape with 2 large metal plates and 6 screws. Doctors forewarned me that I would never play high level soccer again, and that running a marathon was out of the question! After completing my first full marthon in 2015, I wanted more...
I watched Ironman Chattanooga 2015 at the finish line, and felt compelled. I wanted to compete with and against some of the mentally and physiscally strongest athletes on the planet while also proving doctors (and doubters) wrong. My drive to compete against myself, and push my body to its maximum capacity is something i have not taken for granted since my injury in 2010.
I am incredibly excited to be a part of Team Ironman Foundation. The work they are doing in local communities (including the one we live in) is phenomenal, and I truly appreciate your prayers, support and financial contributions.
I hope you will follow my journey between now, and God willing, the finish line of Ironman Chattanooga 2017!
