Look at these crazy group of bloggers signed up for Ironman Coeur D'Alene, its like a convention of something.
To keep this going, here is a little bit about me:
I am 27 years old and I live just across the river from Boston in Somerville, MA. I married my favorite person in the world just over 4 months ago and we have a great little llife living in our one bedroom apartment. Career-wise, I am a dealer of custom apparel and promotional items. If you have been to an airport, I guarantee you have seen my company's stuff and I absolutely love what I do and have a fantastic work situation where I get to hang out with some of my best friends (my boss was actually a groomsman).
As for my athletic background, I have always been active and had done some sort of organized sport from age 6 through college. Whether it be baseball and soccer when I was little, to the years I played tennis and volleyball in middle and high school to playing rugby in college I love sports. I started running marathons a year after college and after 3 seasons, 5 marathons and countless other races, I realized that I missed all the time I got to spend on my bike. I had been a roadie since I was 13 and had done multiple bike tours and even raced for one summer and picking up triathlon seemed like an obvious move. I found a swim coach and now after I finished my second season in triathlon, I have 2 half-ironmans under my belt and Ironman Coeur D'Alene is my first Ironman distance.
So, that is a little bit about me. Oh yeah, one other thing, I am heading off on my honeymoon later today. The T-Shirt Guy Clan (all 2 of us) are heading over the pond for 12 days in Scotland...but after that, it will be 9 months of IM training...so stay tuned to both this site and my blog: tshirtguyj.blogspot.com
Talk to you all soon,
