Not in a million years...

In 1998 I traveled to Florida to support my brother Vince in his first Ironman quest...the Great Floridian. I wasn't a triathlete at the time. I was focused on my professional career and I couldn't understand 1. why he would want to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 and then run a marathon and 2. how he could physically do it. At the time I thought to myself I couldn't do this nor would I do it in a million years. He accomplished his goal in 12 plus hours and is an Ironman.

Fast forward to 2009... I am a triathlete, but not an Ironman. I am the Co-Owner of the premier Road and Triathlon Bicycle Shop in the Northeast, if not the Country, Fit Werx 2 ( in Peabody, MA. My goal is to become an Ironman on July 25, 2010 at Ironman Lake Placid.

I created to this blog to chronicle my training in hope that I'll inspire someone, not to become an Ironman or triathlete, but to make a positive change in their life. You'll come to know me and my family and understand that I am not super-human, I am just like you. I will struggle, I will fall, but I will get up. I will build on my successes and I will become an Ironman.

I now realize that I don't need a million years to become an Ironman.... I need one year. This is my year.
