  • Peaman, Mar. 6, 2016, 1/2 mile swim, 3.9 mile run.  Thanks to my transition help, I was done in transition in under 2 minutes!

  • Honolulu Marathon, Dec.11, 2016, 26.2 mile run.  I thought this race was harder that the Ironman, and the time was slower that the Ironman by two minutes.  However, I qualified for the Boston Marathon in the physically challenged division for 2018!!
