It starts today

I’m in the worst health I’ve ever been. I’ve lost three close friends to cancer in the past two years. I’ve been grieving and I’ve been wallowing. It’s time to move on. But I wanted to honor them as I take on this new challenge. As I get healthy, I will raise money for cancer research. I will invite other to join me in this challenge.

In the past I’ve done sprint triathlons (500-yard swim, 12-mile bike, 3-mile run) but now I want to set my goal very high: Half Ironman. It’s not impossible.

This is just the beginning so follow me as I train (and not train) and take on this challenge.

Update 7/9: training did not start. But it did start on 7/9. Let’s do this!
