My health journey stared 6 yrs ago. I was weighing in at 368 lbs. with a 58 inch waist . I set a goal to complete a sprint triathlon in the first yr after losing 100 lbs. I reached that first goal in July 2005. I then began to set tougher and tougher goals along the way. In 2012 I completed my first full dist Ironman in Louisville weighing in at 203 with a 34 inch waist . 2013 brings me some new challenges, first I’m races in the tour of the Battenkills here in NY, then in June I’m racing with 3 other team members in a race called Race across the west. We are racing from Oceanside CA to Durango Co. 900 miles and 40,000 feet of climbing, we are looking to podium and be finished in 48 hrs.
