About me

Occupation Underwriter
Location tampa, florida
Introduction i work full-time as a life insurance underwriter by day. i work a part-time job called ironman training, and in between, i do some private personal training on the side because i love it. my motto: no more excuses …after 12 years of running and 35+ marathons, i felt that something was missing. I knew in my heart there was an Ironman inside me, just dying to get out, so i decided it was time to stop making excuses about why I couldn’t swim. i made the decision in december 2009, to go for it. i found myself in the pool on january 4th, 2010 and haven't looked back since. to say that my swimming ability was horrible is an understatement. however, as frustrating as the swimming was for the first 3-4 months, practice does make perfect and persistence does pay off. swim=conquered! 10 months later, on October 23rd, 2010, there I was on the shore of a lake, ready to tackle that 140.6 mile distance. although it was not an MDOT race, it was still every bit of 140.6 miles, so hell yeah, I am an ironman! 3 down, many more to go, so buckle up and hang on tight, because, there’s more fun to come ...upward and onward for more 140.6 miles of awesome! welcome to my blog!
