    My 5th Ironman So, I completed my fifth Ironman

    this past July (July 27, 2014), Ironman Lake Placid to be exact. My worst ever finish, but most rewarding and hardest earned finisher medal ever. Long story short, I crashed my bike at mile 90, causing me to lose my breath and could only take shallow breaths for the remaining...
