About Me

I am a husband.  I am a father.  I am a son and I am a brother.  I’m a friend to most and possibly an enemy to some.
With a smile on my face I can also now call myself a triathlete.  I’ve knocked out sprint and olympic distance triathlons and now have my sights set on a 70.3 Half Ironman and the big daddy, the 140.6 Ironman.  Come August 28, 2011 I hope to be able to add one more title to my resume … an Ironman.

This blog started out as a personal project of sorts to document my life for one year through the ups and downs of training for an Ironman.  If only one person reads this and it inspires them to get off the couch on hit the road then I would have considered it worthwhile.  At the minimum, I’ll have this as proof to show the kids and grandkids that their old man really was an athlete at one time!  I hope you enjoy –

[UPDATE]  It took 12 hours, 30 minutes and 44 seconds, but I am now officially an Ironman.

    Hey there. Cool blog. I was just writing to get some advice. I’m training for my first triathlon at Doc and Sok in NJ next month. I noticed you’ve done it a few times, and just wanted to ask if you had any tips or suggestions. I’m actually curious about what type of wetsuit to wear. Not sure what water temperatures might be, or if a particular type is best for swimming. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Keep up the good work!
