From Fatman to 140.6

I started this Go Fund Me for family members but someone told me I should share with everyone. My goal is to raise money to help offset the cost of a new bike. Not just any new bike, the bike that will carry me to my dream of completing 140.6 mile journey.

A little history, I used to weigh 300+ lbs after high school. I sat around and waited for good things to come. When they didn't I came up with excuses as to why they didn't. After deciding enough was enough I found my love for triathlons, shed 100lbs and took the podium on 2/3 triathlons. My dream is to complete 140.6.

Unfortunately the cost of triathlon bikes used for these long distances races are expensive. With school loans etc I decided to start this page to help off set the cost a bit. Any little bit can help me in achieving this goal of turning from fat man to 140.6!
