Five years ago I made a decision that would change the course of my life forever. I was going down a dark path with drugs and alcohol and there wasn't a light at the end of this road. I came to the realization that I needed to make a change and if I didn't things were going to end very poorly. I reached out to a good friend and athletic trainer who put me on a straight path with a workout routine to complete 2 days per week. The only stipulation, NO running. After following this plan for 3 months, I was cleared to go for a run and for the first time I did, not because someone told me I had to, but because I wanted to. Since then I have fallen in love with triathlon and endurance sport and I have never turned back. If there is one message that I can share with my followers, it is that anything is possible if you want it bad enough and do the work necessary.
