I'm 70 years old and currently reside in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Over the years, my long career in endurance sports has given me the opportunity to gain extensive knowledge about exercising and fitness best practices, optimum nutrition, and the power of believing in oneself. My athletic accomplishments include over 30 marathons, two fifty mile races, and over 100 10k races. I'm also a veteran of 11 Ironman Triathlons including Ironman Hawaii 1984. In the late 1980's I spent three years as a Skeleton/Bobsled athlete.
I self-published my first nonfiction book titled "Ironstruck...The Ironman Triathlon Journey" in 2006 and it continues to be well-received by the triathlon community around the world. It was followed by six more non-fiction titles. Ironstruck...500 Ironman Triathlon Questions and Answers, Triathlete in Transition, Lifestruck(for teens and pre-teens), When Running is Not Enough, a revised, updated edition of Ironstruck, and Seniors On The Move. Much like my very first book, the following six self-published books were all written to motivate and inspire others. My latest book is book number eight. It's Kona Calling was published April 18, 2018, and is my first work of fiction.
