2016 Ironman 140.6 Vineman Race Report

Ironman Vineman: A Legacy Of Tradition And Now The Future Of Ironman Events

Over the last couple years I have heard more and more people talking about the Vineman race in Sonoma county and now since Ironman took it over and bought the rights to the race in 2016 I decided to be one of the first athletes to sign up. Ironically this would be my first full Ironman race on U.S. soil as the previous six Ironmans I competed in took part overseas and in Mexico.

Conquering Ironman Cozumel, Mexico 2012

In November 2011, I made the decision to sign up for my third Full Ironman in Cozumel, Mexico on November, 25th 2012. For those who have never heard of the Ironman, it is a long-distance triathlon which includes a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a full marathon consisting of 26.2 miles of running, one section after the other without rest. This extreme endurance event has been held around the world since 1978.

I knew that training for Ironman Cozumel, Mexico was going to be a really tough journey for the next year or so while managing two Roworx facilities, training 20 hours a week on average, and doing all the work behind the scenes in order for my fitness center to flourish. Throughout the past year it has been a massive journey indeed.
