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.”  

- Will Turner, Before The Virginia Quintuple Anvil

 
 

My personal athletic journey started as a skinny, freckled-faced six year-old kid on the swim team. Actually before I was even old enough to be on the team, I used to sit outside the chain-linked fence of the pool, transfixed watching all the older kids for their one-hour swim team practice. At the end of the practice, the coach would divide the team into two groups for a relay race. And if the teams were uneven, she would ask me if I wanted to join one of the groups. I prayed each time for an odd number and anxiously joined in whenever given the chance to do my 25-yard leg for the team!

Fast forward a few decades later and I embarked on my first triathlon in 1993. Since then, I have become a USTA certified triathlon coach and completed 25 Ironman and ultra-distance events. In 2018, my plan is to go for a World Record and complete 60 Ironman-distance events during the year I turn 60 years-old. It's a BOLD adventure that I feel uniquely qualified to achieve.

But I want to make it much bigger than my journey. I am using my 60 @ 60 to serve others. It will be through the Live Your Bold Movement where I can make a positive and lasting impact on tens of thousands. In a nutshell, this movement provides the training, resources and support to help folks step out of their own comfort zones and embark on their own BOLD adventures…whatever they may be.

The good news is that I have over 20 years of professional career experience coaching and training teams all over the globe to reach peak performance…in business and in life. I have spent the past year putting together a FREE Live Your Bold Curriculum that can be geared toward the pursuit of either business or personal goals.

 

So join the movement and continue the journey with me! Together, we can make a difference.
