As many of you know for the last few years I have been training for a variety of athletic events. Recently I have completed the California International Marathon, Rancho Seca Half IRONMAN, Shamrock’N Half Marathon, Golden State Triathlon, and countless 5K and 10K races. I am now training for what is possibly the hardest race of my life, a full distance IRONMAN. For those of you unfamiliar with the event, it is a 2.5 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and finishing it with a 26.2 mile run. I will complete this endurance test on June 24, 2012 in Idaho. Each of my previous races usually support a local cause or charity that the sponsors have chosen. While considering upping my game and going for a full distance IRONMAN an opportunity to do more than race presented itself. Knowing that God always uses me in a way I couldn’t have dreamed I knew this was His plan for me. I am thankful for each day that the Lord gives me. My friend Jake Larsen was putting together a team of men to race and raise awareness and money for Fireproof Ministries and XXXChurch.
