Before I was a “big time blogger,” I was just a regular guy, trying to make his way through the world of triathlon.  I was fortunate enough to have met Rich Ducar, from The Bike Shop in Glen Ellyn.

Rich is one of the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic and giving guys in the world of endurance sports.  I won’t embarrass him with the details of a very long story, but if it wasn’t for Rich, his guidance and kindness, I never would have made it to the finish line in the Ironman. I am eternally grateful.
