My husband started his "Ironman" journey January 1, 2007. With his blood pressure numbers rising he decide to make changes in his life before his blood pressure made those changes for him. In January he changed his diet. In March he started to walk. In June he started to ride his bike on Sundays. Sounds easy huh? Just like all you have to do in an Ironman is swim, bike and run. For anyone who has struggled with weight or who has trained for an Ironman knows that it's not "that easy". Today, he is over 100 pounds lighter than he was 01-01-07. He is my inspiration. He is my hero. He is and will always be my Ironman.
