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.
