I need a new lifeboat


I started off looking to become healthy.  I latched onto a medical provider as my lifeboat. If I followed her advice, I could fix my life.  Simple premise.  Diet and modest walking became modest running, became marathon running.

I needed a new lifeboat and found them:  let’s run 12 marathons in 12 months.  Done.

I needed a new lifeboat.  Push yourself to run under a four hour marathon.  Done.

I needed a new lifeboat.   I became hungrier for a new challenge.  A sub-three hour marathon would never happen.  I needed a lifeboat I could actually swim to.

I found it.  I want to be an Ironman.
