My name is Chris and for almost 15 years I was a drug addict and an alcoholic.....but since May 23rd of 2007, I'm clean and sober...and loving every minute of it!!!! These days my life is filled with family,friends,and a passion for endurance sports. I started training for my first triathlon 3 years ago...I found that if I wanted to stay clean and sober that I needed to fill my time with something constructive. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have enjoyed running, biking and swimming since I can remember...I decided in June of 2007 that I would work my way to competing in one of the most challenging endurance races in the world...THE IRONMAN...not just any Ironman...my goal is to qualify for The World Championships in Kona, Hawaii...(yep the one on TV)...well last year I got one step closer by finishing my first Ironman 70.3...please follow me as I continue my journey into longer distance events ,pushing the limits of what my mind and body tells me is not possible...I promise not to quit until I reach Kona!!!!
