Ironman Lake Placid 2015 - by Mike Meachum
I keep reading all the race reports on here and most people don't seem like they had a good race. I had the time of my life so here's mine.
My swim like everyone else was crowded but it was fun. I couldn't understand why everyone was so tight then I lifted my head and wow, we were at turn 1!!! I felt like someone was pushing me along the entire swim, in fact I was bummed that it was over and I beat my time by 6 minutes. The volunteers ripped that wetsuit off and I was gone.

A couple weeks ago I had the great opportunity of meeting Dave James Tzakanikas, whom I had never heard of but happens to be a well known ultra running champion. Our Team Red White & Blue chapter had organized a trail run with him in Danbury, CT. I did the logic thing to do when people don’t know something, I googled him. I was in shock when I learned about Dave, his story, his records and his road to becoming a world champion. I was even more ecstatic of the fact that I was about to go on a run with him. During the trail run we talked about running (shocking). Dave suggested I should attend the 2014 Team Red White & Blue Trail Running Camp as the 2013 camp was soon approaching and he wasn't sure if I could still get in. I did not know much about trail running but the idea of attending a camp seemed interesting.
