My name is Jethro. The aim of this project is to please assist me in fulfilling a dream of competing in Ironman 70.3. I have always been an active person playing everything from Soccer, to swimming to body boarding the list is almost endless and i feel like this is the next level i need to push myself to.
For those who dont know what Ironman 70.3 is, it is a triathlon consisting of a 1.9km (1.2miles) ocean swim then a 90km (56 mile) bicycle ride and finishing with a 21.1km (13.1mile) run. This is a mental and physical battle of note.
The reason i am putting this to crowdfunding is because i need to purchase a road bicycle and if you dont know these are very expensive. Along with this is the costs of helmet, cleets, Tri-Suit, entrance fees etc etc which all adds up and i am hoping that with your help i can make this dream come true.
I have been thinking how i can thank the people that do donate and help me get there and while it isn't much what i will do is for every $50 or more donated by an individual i ask that you can send me a picture of your face and i will get them printed onto a vest that i will wear when i cross the finish line so you can all be there with me in some way.
