As many you may know, I have the opportunity of a lifetime and this year I'm racing 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run with the best triathletes in the World in the 2012 Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii on October 13th.

Certainly I'm far from being a Pro or even a top Age Group athlete, but I feel I represent many people that wish to race in Kona! All the beginners, the weekend warriors, the people trying to lose weight or get healthy (I was one of those!!) the average joe with a regular job and families, the mere mortals that dream they could race with the gods and in the mecca of triathlon!!

I'm currently looking for sponsors or donations that will help me get to Kona. People can contact me here on my blog, Facebook & Twitter @road2ironman and on Instagram @bto81. I would like to thank for the awesome promo photos.
