My name is Klemen, former basketball player now doing my best as a triathlete.
I just finished my first 70.3 Ironman - actually finished it on my terms because I was a bit slow on the bike course. I was doing the course with a mountain-bike - the only bike I could afford and that was big enough.
Of course doing an Ironman with a mountain bike is like playing basketball with mountain shoes. It can be done but it's a struggle.
I'm doing triathlons for our charity - the Resistentia foundation that helps kids stay in sport by paying all costs for their sport activities as well as for additional workouts (if needed). By participating in triathlons and similar activities (marathons, ultra marathons) I - with the help of my friends - want to raise awareness, promote what we do and help get more people involved.
I'll keep this go-fund-me open until 30.3.2019. All contributions will be devoted to getting the bike I need. If we won't meet the needed amount or if I'll get more money than needed - then all contributions will be devoted to the Resistentia charity (http://www.resistentia.eu/?page_id=371)
