Hello I am Dave. I am a dad of three, a woodworker, and an Entrepreneur. I live in a small town in Iowa and in March of 2013 I had an awakening of sorts. I was involved in a Nerf war with my two youngest kids when I proceeded to chase them up the stairs. When I got to the top of the stairs I dropped to the ground gasping for air. In this brief moment I had a thought that if my life and fitness level did not change I would not be here to see my daughter graduate from school.
That night I sat down and looked over my bucket list to find a goal that I could pursue that would be challenging and would allow me to change my lifestyle. I have an extensive list with many things I wanted to accomplish however I knew right away that completing an Ironman was a big enough goal to make a change in my life.
After deciding to set a path to achieving this goal I decided that I wanted this to be about something far larger than one man trying to finish an Ironman. I talked to my friend Dr. Richard Deming the founder of Above + Beyond Cancer and asked if I could setup a charity fundraising page to raise money for his organization in conjunction with my Ironman challenge.
