My name is Brian Boyle, and I am living proof that miracles happen. A month after I graduated high school in 2004, I was coming home from swim practice and was involved in a near fatal car accident with a dump truck. The impact of the crash violently ripped my heart across my chest, shattering my ribs/clavicle/pelvis, collapsing my lungs, causing damage to every single organ, failure of my kidneys and liver, removal of spleen and gallbladder, resulting in the loss of 60% of my blood, severe nerve damage to my left shoulder, and leaving me in a coma where I was on life support for over two months at Prince Georges Hospital Center in Cheverly, MD. I don't have a memory of the accident, or the few days before the day of the accident. The first thing that I remember after the collision, which is still so vivid in my mind even today, is being in this very large white tube. In this tube was a boy sitting to my left, and many other boys and girls on my right side (I use the term "boys and girls" because they app ...

How I spent my day with Keith Drayer Today i competed & completed my 1st half Ironman Triathlon, called a Toughman. Keith is a 3rd time finisher. Here's how it went for me. Forget the fact that I woke up at 3, arrived at Croton Pointe Park at 430 for a 640 start. Next to childbirth, this was the hardest thing I ever did. But since I did not physically give birth, then today was the hardest thing I ever did, X3. SWIM - 1.2 Miles. This was supposed to be an easy swim in the Hudson, turned out to be the exact opposite. Like going uphill both ways barefoot, the current was cutting across the route both out and back. I felt like I was swimming the way my dog walks, never in a straight line. I think a brick could swim faster than I did today. - Very hilly 56 miles with over 3200 feet of climbing with the biggest climb right after mile 1. Since the route was a double loop, I got to do that climb twice. Overall very manageable with a great route up and down Route 9A from Croton to Peekskill. - Again, ve ...

Exactly one year ago today, I started officially training for my first ironman triathlon. So what to do this year? Well I could try to plan a vacation that doesn't involve an endurance event like a normal person. I guess maybe I can try that next year. For my fortieth birthday this year, I decided to complete the NYC marathon. Let the miserable heat training begin...today.
I'm FREE! When it comes to health and fitness, and my sport of triathlon I'm a very type A personality. I train with a very structured plan, and heaven forbid that I miss a scheduled workout. Long course triathlons such as Ironman 70.3 and Ironman 140.6 require daily workouts (sometimes 2 or 3). Your life and the life of your family becomes shackled by your training sessions resulting in what I call training bondage. My family and I lived under that bondage for the past three summers, and because of my competitive nature we were headed into another summer of the same as I began training for Ironman 70.3 Muncie. This week I decided to pull the plug on Muncie. This was my decision and came as a welcomed surprise to my family. Don't worry, I love Ironman triathlon and it's challenge, I just need a summer without that level of training. This summer will be spent training and racing with team Burch, and pursuing our new organization Mission 1:37. Next Summer you will see me once again at the start line of Iron ...

Huge congratulations to my brother Andrew for completing an Ironman triathlon - including running up and down Ben Nevis! - in 18 hours 3 minutes and 4 seconds. A 2.4 mile swim in the Firth of Forth, a 112 mile bike ride to Glencoe, topped off by a full marathon distance of 26.2 miles up and down the mountain. What an incredible achievement. I've had to sit down just thinking about it (I stick to running 4k and don't like cold showers). Somehow 'well done' doesn't seem to cover it!
My pales into insignificance compared to what 2 friends are doing today, an ironman Triathlon finishing a top Ben Nevis. Go Darren Checkley & Colin Durrant and to Fran Checkley & crew supporting them.

On behalf of the Members and Officers of the New Market Fire and Rescue are thoughts and prayers go out to. Sgt. Frank Guinn, a firefighter at Station 21, was killed while training for an Ironman Triathlon in New Orleans. Sgt. Guinn was bicycling with his brother-in-law when they were hit by a car on the Chef Menteur Highway. His brother-in-law is in critical condition. "Sgt. Guinn's brothers and sisters in Atlanta Fire Rescue are devastated at this news," said Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. "He was a dedicated professional and devoted to his family. As a Department, we will wrap our collective arms around his wife Kim and his three beautiful girls. We ask that you keep them and Sgt. Guinn's entire family in your thoughts and prayers."
FOUND RACING BICYCLE I'm riding around in the Big Blue Truck and I find a bike on the side of I-80. It must have fallen off someone's car. So I stop the truck and walk back and pick it up, then strap it to catwalk on my truck. It has a bent rear wheel & no front wheel. Seems pretty light. I could use a bike is what I thought. Anyway, I took it out of the van yesterday, I'm looking it over and I find an Ironman Triathlon sticker on it. Curiosity peeked it's head up, let's look this up on the Web. So here it is: This bicycle is worth about $1500 dollars easy. So if you can repost this and we can find the owner, then the good guys win. Simple right? Let's see how small the world is!

Tri’ing for Scholarships It is that time again, and the Community Church of Lake Berryessa is raising money for college scholarships for local youth. For the 4th year Pastor Bob is challenging the waters and roads of Lake Berryessa in a Half Ironman Triathlon on April 12th at 0700 hours. The church is accepting pledges to go into our scholarship program and be awarded at the end of the school year. Any amount is greatly appreciated and last year four scholarships were given out totaling $1,250. Our local Lake Berryessa youth are selected for the scholarships, and your help is greatly appreciated in helping them pursue their higher education. To donate contact the Church at 252-4488 or pledge sheets may be found at various locations around the Lake. Donations will be collected after the event and, as always, if Pastor Bob does not finish you don’t have to pay. Thanks again! God Bless, Pastor Bob

Dear Inge HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Andrew, who completed his 226km IRONMAN triathlon in 15hrs and 29mins! Thank you so much for your pledge which has contributed to a total of R94 120 raised from agents, staff and managers from around the country. PGP Head Office will be matching these contributions ‘Rand for Rand,’ which means that we have raised R188 240 for the Heart of Gold Trust. To reiterate, the Heart of Gold Trust has been formed with the express purpose of discovering and investing in exceptional, yet undiscovered, young talent in the fields of academia, sport, art or culture. In order to ensure the optimal success of this important PGP endeavour, we have recently formed a strategic partnership with the MAD CHARITY (Make a Difference), experts in the corporate social space, who have successfully changed the lives of many talented young South Africans over the past 10 years Watch this space for exciting details as we go forward together. Once again, well done, Andrew! Regards Niki
Nicholas, Emma and I participated in the north country community recreation center's swimathon today to raise money for the swim team. Watch out Ironman Triathlon, my boy has got your number. If you want HIS number, it is 5...years old. He'll see you soon...
Since Aleister responded first, and he came up with a manageable number, here are my 4, in no great thought-out order. 1. Before I screwed my back up, I thought it would be really awesome to run the Ironman Triathlon when I turned 50. 2. The only thing I actively dislike about working retail is the presumption that speed equals quality. 3. My favorite movies, in no particular order are: Patton, The Count of Monte Cristo, and The Muppet Christmas Carol. 4. The dog barked relentlessly at my bust of Julius Caesar when the office was being repainted so badly that the parents had to put a towel over him. Considering his end in Shakespeare where he pulled the toga over his head, this has always made me wonder if Brutus is still serving out karmic *** in dog form.
I didn't know Chef Gordon Ramsay competed in the Ironman Triathlon. Pretty impressive.
A KA`U TEEN IS LOCKED UP IN KONA after interacting with swimmers practicing for this weekend’s Ironman Triathlon. The 100 lb. monk seal, born six months ago at Kamilo near South Point, was swimming Tuesday off Ali`i Drive in Kailua-Kona among a slew of Ironman triathletes. Apparently looking to play, the monk seal swam circles around swimmers and nipped one man on the knee and another on his side, according to a story in this morning’s West Hawai`i Today. The two incidents follow reports over the last month concerning the monk seal teenager interacting with fishermen, beachgoers and swimmers along the Ka`u, South Kona an Kona Coast, including hauling out on boat ramps and at Kailuea Pier. After biting triathletes, the seal was captured by wildlife biologists who decided to cage him for a short time before releasing him back into the wild, perhaps at a more remote location than Kailua-Kona where more than 2,000 triathletes will compete in the Ironman this Saturday. The youngster, one of less than 200 e ...

Congrats to Kingdom Multisport athlete Nathan Brock who had a blast in a "fun" triathlon this week. No times goals, no pressure, just have fun... REV3 Williamsburg is next, and Nathan will be getting into "Race mode" and attacking that course! Congrats to Ryan Ford who did a 2.4 mile open water swim race and placed 3rd OA with a screaming 59:08 min swim! Ryan is in his taper for Ironman Coeur de' alene in less than 2 weeks! It's also worth noting his 14 year old son placed first OA in the 1.2 mile distance with a 29:08. Way cool! Congrats to Ryan and Nathan!

Join me for my Ironman Oz camp in Port Mac, Australia in September
Eagleman takeaways: (1) Swim times were 5-6 minutes slower generally across the field. A local Cambridgian (?) told me that when it rains like it did that so much water flows into the Choptank way upstream and currents are effected for days afterward. He told me we would be swimming against a strong current on the falling tide. Regardless of that, my SWIM time REALLY sucked..9 min slower than last year. Guess what I'll be working on? (2) The competitive field was really unbelievable. My 55-59 age group was indicative. Last year, 4 athletes did the race in less than 5:10. This year, 15 did. (Even with the slower swim times. How many would have if the swim had been "normal?") W35-39, same story, last year 14, sub-5:10's and this year, 22. I'd love to hear some theories about why the field was so much stronger. Bottom line, I had an aggressive plan which I met, by and large, for transitions, bike and run. In order to be more competitive I have to swim more and get better at swimming in adverse conditions.
Very proud of my Bro-in-Law Marcus! Came 5/177 for his age group and 22/1141 overall in the IronMan Triathlon in Cairns. He also achieved a Personal best of 9:28:58 and has qualified for the world championships in Hawaii! What an achievement! Well done mate!
Run 16 miles, swim 2500 yards, bike 95 miles. I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.
