BECOME AN IRONMAN
by Cherie Gruenfeld
An amateur’s guide to the world’s toughest endurance event
Become an Ironman is a treasure trove of deeply insightful training and racing wisdom hard-won during the course of triathlete Cherie Gruenfeld’s sixteen-year Ironman career, along with some great stories and reminiscences.
THE EE KIDS NOW HAVE THEIR VERY OWN WEBSITE
Exceeding Expectations, a program in San Bernardino that serves an inner-city population, is designed to encourage at-risk kids to move their lives in a positive direction, using the sport of triathlon as the vehicle.
The goal is not to develop the kids into elite athletes, but rather to offer them opportunities to participate in a lifestyle that is healthy, goal-oriented and very unlike that which they experience in their everyday lives. We strive to replace negative influences with positive role models and to instill in the kids a powerful new discipline of setting measurable goals and working hard to achieve them.
Our highest priority is education, and our ultimate objective is to ensure that every one of the kids graduates high school and goes on to college. We make this promise to all the EE kids: When you get into college, we'll make sure money isn't an obstacle.
