Jon "Blazeman" Blais (1971 - 2007)
Wow. Just wow.
I think I might have mentioned it here once before, but it's been my dream and goal to complete an Ironman Triathlon next year, the year I turn 40. While doing some research this morning on various training programs, I came across the story of Jon "Blazeman" Blais - the first person ever diagnosed with ALS to complete the Ironman Championship in Kona (2.4 mile ocean swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run).
I hope you'll be able to watch this amazing and inspirational story. I promise it will be worth every minute.
