When I was 25 years old and was bitten by the tri bug, I set a goal to complete a Half Ironman before I turned 30 years old. Three months ago I turned 29. Therefore, it is crunch time!
My uncle lives in St. Croix and my wife has been dying to visit. I’ve also been dying to conquer The Beast. It all fell into place! So in May, my wife and I will be traveling to St. Croix to visit family, celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary, and she will watch me defeat The Beast (while she drinks on the beach) and support me in accomplishing the goal she witnessed me make 5 years ago.
