10 Year Challenge

10 Year Challenge

10 year challenge Swim Bike Run Marathon Ironman Triathlon
The first picture was taken at the 2011 Philly Rock’n’Roll half marathon, and I believe it was my first half. And the second picture is from last September (2021) at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship.
I did my first 70.3 in 2019, I was so emotional at the finish line for completed such a long distance race. My wife asked me if my next challenge would be to run a full (140.6)? And my answer was, not right away, first I need to qualify and race a 70.3 World Championship. Well, I qualified at my second 70.3 race, it was the Eagleman in Cambridge, MD and I broke the sub 5h. For my third 70.3, I was competing the World Championship in Saint George, Utah.

So now my next goal is to race a full, and it will be in July 2022 at Lake Placid.
