New Year

Hello everyone! This new year I've decided to share my journey of family, work and training with the goal of competing in Ironman Lake Placid in 2012. 

Some of the many things I'll be doing this year is trying to improve my overall running; therefore, I'll be doing more half marathons and 10k's.  As for triathlons, I want to do at least two Half Ironman's and a hand full of local Olympic and sprint races.  This will be outlined and managed by my coach Brad Seng, who coached and helped me through two Ironmans last year.  Memorial Day weekend, some friends and I are going to the Grand Canyon and going to run/hike from the North rim to the South rim.  In addition to the training, my family and I are planning on taking a trip to Yellowstone, which has been a life long dream for me.  In the fall, I'll continue to help coach my son's football team.

Of course this is the plan for 2011 so far and we'll see where this year will take me. The purpose of this blog is for me to look back at how the year unfolds and for me to put myself out there for everyone else to share this journey. 




  1. WOW! Way to go Mike. Maybe we can head over to Lake Placid and scope it out in 2012. I believe it is not too far of a drive from VT...I have never been.

    Good luck with the training. You and my sis inspire me to do more! Thanks for that.
