60 Ironman/Full Distance Triathlons In One Year...
When people hear what I’m doing, most think that I’m crazy. I don’t see it that way. Of course, I usually lose that argument, but that’s ok. If I simply plant the seed that we ALL have so much more that we are capable of, then it's a win!
Do you have things that get you pumped up and really excited? For me, it’s breaking through my own self-imposed limits and helping others do the same. So the 60 @ 60 Challenge and Live Your Bold Movement is a perfect way for me to do that!
In January of 2018, I turned 60 years old. My BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) is to complete 60 ironman (also known as full distance triathlon) races/events in a year. It would be a World Record and will certainly test me in ways that I’ve never been tested before. But I’m not one to shy away from a challenge.
I don’t consider myself a gifted endurance athlete; rather one who is willing to put in whatever hard work is needed to get it done! While any endurance challenge requires a strong and healthy body. I’m convinced that my success will hinge on my mental strength and fortitude…something I have tested many times before.
“I have no desire to live an ordinary life. I feel most alive when I’m pushing myself and I believe with every ounce of my being that we all are capable of so much more than we will ever realize. It is our choice to step into our boldness, even when struggle and pain are inevitable and success is precarious and uncertain. Because it is through struggle that we forge who we are, who we can become and the difference we can make in the world.”
