Hi Mike,I've just seen this article posted by some-one on my twitter feed and have just read some of your blog.Good for you on the weight loss and training. Awesome achievement.I used to weight about 300lb back in 2005 when I decided to do some-thing about it. I ran the NY Marathon in 2006 and then got into Triathlon. I've now done two full Ironman and three 70.3s with another two planned later this year (both in the USA - I live in the UK).Good luck with all the training. Completing an Ironman is a great experience! Enjoy! Triathlon is a great sport and amazing how it can change your life.Steven.
