It is time!

Aug 31, 2006

The word is out.  Come with us on this journey!!!! 

The start of a journey is often scary. It is often the hardest part. To say you want to do something is easy, but to put your plan into action is far different. The road may be clouded, the sky may be dark, but the journey is well worth it. Think of what you will feel like when you cross that line. 2007 is just around the corner - do you have a dream?

Do you have a dream to do a 5k? How about a Marathon? What about a sprint triathlon? Do you want to cross the line of an Ironman? If you have a dream, I promise I will walk with you each step of the way for the 2007 season!  As an added bonus, MANY other Podcasters and Bloggers are on the Team already!

Whatever your dream is, maybe its time to see it to the end. Yes you will need to do Ironman Wisconsin 2007 to win the complete package, BUT you can do ANY race, have ANY goal, and pick ANY journey to come with us. 

Check out the official Press Release:

ok, one concern here. I was not really planning on doing Moo in \'07 but doing it in \'08. When will the selection happen? If I get picked I will have to move the timetable up here if it done before the signup hour. Does anybody know any more details?
