Wow! 79 days, 10 hours, 14 minutes, and 26 seconds (give or take a few seconds) I will be in the chilly sub 60 degree water of Tempe Town Lake in Arizona with about 3500 others treading water waiting for the cannon to start us off. Each of us with different reasons and stories that will have us swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles to earn the title of Ironman.
My short story, began several years back, when my friend, Dan Grinberg shared some Long Island Hunger stats. I remember the feeling of surprise and angry. Now that Hunger stat has grown to over 300,000 people with 100,000 children, and that should never happen in any community!
My family and friends have assisted in different events and food drives, and want to continue the fight until this Challenge is over. So when I decided to take on an Ironman, I wanted to dedicate my journey to Island Harvest.
What I am especially excited is that I am able to offer some of the gear that I will be wearing during my Ironman Race to my friends and family! Show your colors of support with a triathlon kit, cycling kit or running shirt, and we are able to offer you a discount with proceeds going to Island Harvest. Here is an example design on a really cool cycling jersey.
