The Day Before Ironman

This is my out of office message to my coworkers:

Hi friends,
I'm out of the office this weekend running down my dreams. Years ago, I found this video of the Ironman triathlon on YouTube. I owned a K-Mart bike and if I had ever run before, it surely was on accident. This is why I work in social media – a video made by someone I never met altered the course of my life. It took me four years to get fit enough to complete my first Ironman Wisconsin in 2014, and through broken goggles and a flat tire, I finished. On Sunday, I’ll swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 and run 26.2, hopefully an hour faster than before. I’ll be trackable here using bib number 754. Mobile devices are prohibited, so I’ll leave you with this: If your dreams don’t scare you, you’re not dreaming big enough.
See you Tuesday!
Kelly Mahoney
