Why am I doing an IronMan?
- I am trying to raise awareness of leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers. I know that me suffering through an endurance race has nothing to do with curing cancer directly, but the process itself is magic. When people ask me why I would even think travelling 140.6 miles on my own power, I am happy to tell them that I am raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
- There are people who would love to do what I'm doing, but by no choice of their own, they cannot. I have the choice, so I do.
- I DNF'ed in 2004 at Vineman (Did Not Finish). I was short about 8 miles. I want to finish.
- I want to be a good role model for my son.
