“Life is either a Daring Adventure or Nothing at all”
I had the opportunity to compete in the Ironman 70.3 Willmington, NC and set a tremendous personal record. I beat my last time by over an hour.
My largest lesson was this – if you put in the work – you will get the result. O, how I wish life was different sometimes.
It is funny. The harder you work – the ‘luckier’ (and faster) you get.
And of course – you need coaches if you are attempting something epicly big. Actually, that was probably lesson number two – why don’t we have coaches for every area of life we want to get better at? In my opinion, we should.
Patty Waldron, I cut 7 minutes off my last swim time. You rock!
Jeremy Walton, let’s just be honest – I have a love/hate relationship with you. 🙂 But seriously, thank you for making me stronger for this race.
I want to shout out to my friend David Berlant for friggin qualifying for the South Africa World Championships – it is well deserved. This guy is a rockstar.
And of course, my beautiful and outstanding woman Ms. Rachel who supported me so much the last few weekends – thank you. I asked her the other day, “Rachel, how did I get so lucky in love and in life?!”
My family watched me on the Ironman tracker and cheered me on – I felt the energy. Love you all! Julia Sansone, Charity Joan, Chris Wegert, Amelia LaVanchy, Tim Wegert, Abigail Dyson, William Wegert. I raced for you all, my students, and team – I want to be an example of what is possible – Ironman says, “anything is possible’.
Congratulations to all my other friends who absolutely crushed this race. See you at the next one.
