On a sunny, saturday afternoon in San Antonio, at the ripe age of 8, I remember my gracious, great uncle taking the training wheels off my trek series 200, and teaching a young, uncoordinated, goofy kid (me) how to ride a bike. Fast forward 19 years, and you can watch me quoted (@ 0:46) in an NBC NYC local news story as "a long-time cyclist".
Through my passions for challenge, commitment to the community, and conditioning, I have embarked on a journey to compete in my first triathlon, set to take place on a hopefully sunny, somewhat cool, July 14th in New York City.
This endeavor is both personal and communal:
Personal in the sense that I have committed to training for an event consisting of a 1.5 km (.93 mile) swim, followed by a 40 km (25 mile) bike ride, and topped off with a 10 km (6 mile) run.
Communal in the sense that I have committed to raise $3000 for an awesome organization, CampInteractive (CI), which strives to leverage the creative powers of technology with the inspiration of the outdoors to help inner-city youth dream, learn, and achieve.
My pledge to you and CampInteractive, is to do the best I can to train, compete and raise funds for CI's endeavors. In return, I ask you to make a donation in my honor, as inspiration, motivation and dedication to the community.
