Two years ago, Steve was a smoker. He did not work out. At all. In 2009, he watched me finish Ironman WI, and he made a decision. He would be an Ironman. Thus, his journey was set in motion.
In January 2010, he ran his first 5k.
In July 2010, he completed his first triathlon, an Olympic distance.
In September 2010, he completed his first half-iron distance race.
In May 2011, he ran his first marathon.
In July 2011, he completed his second half-iron distance race, 40 minutes faster than his first.
On August 10th, 2011 the unthinkable happened.
On September 11, 2011…one month and one day after getting hit by a car, Steve became an Ironman.
To say I am proud of him is such an understatement. In two short years he has come so far. His determination, will, and tenacity are inspiring. His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious.
Congratulations babe, you are an Ironman!
