I started the sport of triathlon from scratch only six years ago, back in first year; those were the days of swimming with bulky board shorts, riding a ridiculous hulking mountain bike onto the streets, and running with heavily worn-down sneakers without any proper sense of pacing.

Volunteered for 2010, camped out, entered 7th in line, had credit card and driver’s licence in hand, signed the next year of my life away...and secured my spot for the 2011 Ironman Canada!
On August 28th, 2011, three hundred and sixty one days from today, I vow to cross that finish line for the very first time and say “I freaking did it!” That is all.
