Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Ironman Lake Placid – One more time

After 4 years off of long-distance triathlons and much debate about whether the 2014 Ironman Maryland was my last race, I am excited to announce that I will be returning to Lake Placid, NY on July 18, 2018 for the 20th Anniversary of Ironman Lake Placid (and my 10th anniversary of being an Ironman).

My training plan will not officially begin until January 2018.  In the mean time, I’m keeping focused on running (with the Heartbreakers in Boston) and strength training.

While on a hiatus from Ironman triathlon for the past three years, I have not been a complete couch potato.  In between a few half marathons, I’ve been spending a fair amount of time applying the lessons I’ve learned from Ironman to my life at work.

2014 not only marked my 5th Ironman race, but also my shift from West Coast startup life back to East Coast corporate life.  I love thinking through how my triathlon life can positively influence my success within IBM.  For my “pre-training” mode through the end of 2017, I’ll be publishing a 10-part series on lessons from triathlon applied to business life.
