In Honor Of…

Why triathlons, marathons, and century rides?

There are so many reasons, and the names listed in the table below are just a few. I train in honor of my friend Jan, in memory of my Uncle Kenny, my grandfather, my great aunt, my friends Robb and Jeff, and the long list of others who have battled cancer. If you would like me to train in honor or memory of someone, please add their name in the comments section below.
