I can't remember the first time it happened. Maybe February, maybe March of 2017, but I jumped on the trainer for a quick ride, and after about 20 minutes I came off. I didn't feel right. I sat on my sofa and immediately fell asleep. And not an okay asleep. Like a comatose, I can't move my limbs, kind of sleep.

Let this sink in for a second.
John, our TUSA Ambassador, steps up to the start line of Ironman Coeur d'Alene at 6am this morning. 9h51m40s later, John emerges from the run with a second place age group finish, seventh place overall, besting 973 other athletes on the day.
I am absolutely floored. John, our collective hats are off to you.
It's why I love this team. Because here we have athletes from all walks of life. Misfits, parents, contenders and podium finishers, through all walks of life, of all abilities. The Angry Unicorn stands for all.
Here's the breakdown of John's race (unofficial at the moment):
Heads up. This is going to be a lengthy post. Honestly, I've been wanting to write this post for a long long time. Thinking about writing about it makes me feel great. I'm flooded with sense of accomplishment. It immediately makes me smile to think - "I actually fucking did that" (sorry for the language, but it was called for).
BUT, for some reason I'm stuck in this constant mode of putting it off, putting it off, putting it off.
Sometimes this blogging stuff is hard. Mostly because I have a partner like Brandon on my back to "get content out" all the time. I'm kidding, I love Brandon, and his content driven ways. That's why we have the best blog around! Right? Right!
These are LONG LONG overdue, but as the team gets back to reality a few things are going to slip through the cracks, so I apologize. On Sunday, November 27th, in the glaring heat and surreal beauty of Cozumel, Mexico, Brandon and Alex tackle IRONMAN Cozumel and successfully crossed that elusive finish line in all it's glory.
I knew I had to do it (I was hooked after going to the Calgary event anyway!) and it was important to him and no matter how old your children are, you want to support them, and so the planning was underway!
As the team gets settled into Cozumel, a quick post is required to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of two of our Unicorns. Sunday was an absolutely perfect day in Tempe, AZ and Trevor and Tammy crushed their respective races, both beating their expectations by wide margins and in the process accomplishing something that is truly incredible.
