Mike Dolen's Ultraman Florida Quest

I need your help. I have a massive goal I am chasing, but it is not a goal I can reach on my own... I am 1 of 40 people in the world who has been invited to compete in Ultraman Florida in February, 2015.

What and Why?
I am driven by an insatiable desire to redefine what I am truly capable of doing. I have been searching for an almost impossible answer regarding what I can achieve and Ultraman is, to me, the epitome of achievement. The pinnacle of accomplishment. Thus, I have identified Ultraman Florida as my ultimate goal: and I am intent on pursuing it with every fiber of my being.

Ultraman is a 3-day, 320 mile race that is invariably considered the hardest endurance race in the world. Day#1 = a 6.2 mile Swim and 90 mile Bike. Day#2 = a 171.4 mile Bike. The race concludes on Day#3 with a 52.4 mile double-marathon Run.

However, triathlon in general -- and Ultraman in particular -- is not a cheap sport. There are massive equipment and training costs, thousands of dollars in registration fees, thousands of dollars in travel and accommodations for a 'crew' of 4 support team members, and a whole host of nutrition and recovery expenses.

It's not easy to ask for monetary support and I am deeply appreciative of the funding support I have received thus far. I will be equally grateful for anything that you may be able to offer in support.

No matter what you may or may not offer, I'd love to have your emotional support in this huge effort!

A sincere thanks! Mike
