I run a big cat sanctuary and spend my free time coaching and keeping tabs on Carole.
Ten years ago I got tired of being tired. Tired in the morning, tired at work, tired at home. Around that time my wife did a triathlon and I was lazy (tired). She finished, super proud. Time to do something...started running, little biking, went to the pool, remembered how to swim. Did a sprint triathlon. Didn't die. Saw the Ironman World Championships on TV (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile swim), couple thousand people finished it. Well, they did it, why not me? Completed 3 full distance Ironman's and couple of half distances over the last 10 years.
We are all capable of more than we acknowledge. Sometimes we need a push. I can do that.
