No more dodging
I am totally in awe and inspired by the people and the articles contained within your pages. I have been contemplating a return to the sport for a while and was truly motivated after reading about a friend from the past who is currently completing Ironman distance events while training in harsh environments. Following a parachuting accident and knee surgery, I became a couch potato always using the excuses, “I will start tomorrow!” “Oh, my knee hurts!” I used to live off my past saying, “I used to be a triathlete back in ’92/’93.”
I finally decided to get off my butt and do something about it. I lost a lot of weight and bought a bike – I am now in training for a 70.3 in 2015 and then to complete the big one, a full Ironman in 2016. All the people contained within your pages are an inspiration, but the article that touched me and my main motivator to return to triathlon
James M. Henderson Good to hear you’ve been inspired, James! We must admit that after reading Steve’s story, the old ‘I forgot my swimming kit’ excuse did feel a bit lame... Good luck with your racing!
