My name is David, and I am competing in the Alaskaman™ Extreme Triathlon in July.
I have always enjoyed extreme challenges, so why not sign up for Alaskaman™?
I had completed three Ironman™ races, so of course a more extreme and grueling challenge sounded exciting. As I started to train, I began to realize just how blessed I was to be able to accept a challenge such as this. A little later I started to realize that regardless of how much of a challenge training was, or even the race itself would be, it paled in comparison to what others dealt with on a daily basis just to do those things that so many of us take for granted.
Sherry and I are longtime friends with the Crawfords, and over time they have become more like family. We knew them when Mackenzie was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at age four and have watched them stand up to challenges that none of us should have to. The real champions standing up to bigger than life challenges are these boys and their families. I hope you will join us in supporting the effort to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
