Thanks to the people who set this up. It rocks. I would like to introduce my wife J-Wim and myself bigmike. We will be on Di Taylors teamSherpa for IMCdA.
After spending our whole adult lives overweight..I mean OVERWEIGHT, we finally got it figured out and lost a combined 350 pounds through diet and exercise in 2006. That is not a typo.
Running, Swimming and Biking saved our lives. We will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary next weekend. (I'm taking my wife to do a 10K on our anniversary). We have 2 boys 17 1/2 and 15.
This was our first year of triathlon. We completed a sprint distance and joined a local tri team. We have done a lot of run focus up to this point and just did our first half marathon. We have 2 half IM distance tri's lined up for next year along with a couple duathlons and a couple other triathlons and are planning IMWI 09 (if we can get in..it sold out in 23 minutes after it went up on active.com this year).
We went and watched IMWI last weekend and learned a lot. We can not wait to meet up with all of you great people and give you all the support and encouragement you need to complete your journey. We feel privileged to be included.
