Ironman Canada 2010

We are in the final month of preparation for the Ironman Canada triathlon in Penticton, BC to be held on August 29th. While preparation for an Ironman distance race has not been optimal I am confident we will accomplish our goal. To be the first physically challenged team to complete the Ironman. You may be aware that along with my paracycling partner Devon we completed Ironman Hawaii last October. This time my pilot is a below the knee amputee named Meyrick Jones. Meyrick lost his leg in a cable car accident in San Frabcisco in his early 20's. Meyrick is Married and has 3 children. He is part owner of Innovative Fitness in Port Moody BC, a personal training facility. We hope to inspire, motivate abd raise awareness for physically challenged athletes. Our teamwork will prove that anything is possible. Individually we would each need assistance during the race but together as a team we will do it all on our own. It's going to be a fun and exciting day.
