“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
Favorite race/competition experience:
Ironman Ireland - absolutely dreadful race condition (cold, pouring rain) and a gnarly bike course didn’t scare away the masses of the most enthusiastic, supportive fans, who lined the course and made the experience one that was unforgettable.
