~~Why IRONMAN... TEXAS;
Throughout the years, I've always been one of those persons who are always looking for challenges, for new adventures, and new goals to conquer. As I look forward for those aspect of life that keep me living and bring joy to my heart, I have also felt compelled to help those in need by, for example, giving advice to those who come to me to seek it, and by supporting good causes that make the world a better place.
About three years ago, I started training without having a specific purpose; just because I wanted to get better and live a healthier life. And maybe, if there was an opportunity to be part of a competition, I would take the challenge. Although I had heard of the IRONMAN competition before, and had the remote idea of been part of it, it wasn't until about two years ago that someone recommended me a book about an “ultraman”, that I started considering the possibility of really competing in a triathlon and even in the IRONMAN race.
To my fortune, I found out that IRONMAN had a franchise here in Texas, and that it was happening in my neighborhood, (as you can see in the picture). So this year I became a spectator for the first time, which was an amazing experience! Just to feel the energy on the starting line as everybody was getting ready to enter the water: and later on to see the bike course and cheer for them, I was really feeling that it was something I had to do.
As I said in the beginning, I am always looking for opportunities, for new challenges, and if I can do it while I'm helping others, it becomes mostly gratifying. IRONMAN TEXAS is giving me the opportunity to raise funds that will go directly to the community where I am living and form part of; and that is why I am appealing to you, my friends, acquaintance, companies, and all of those who want to be part of this amazing event, to donate and help me raise the goal of $3,000.00. Although you might not be able to swim, bike and run alongside of me, with your donation you will help me do it and you will make a great contribution to my community to keep the many non-profit services provided alive and healthy.
Thank you for your support
