"I think there are some great stories out there from everyday athletes, the weekend warriors like myself that when shared, would make a bigger impact than talking about pro athlete X using product Y. I've learned a lot using TrainingPeaks over the past year as a Premium member and I am sure a lot of people have learned the same things as I have."
From fatman to Ironman, Rodney Buike has been on a journey that has taken him from a 250 lb. couch potato to a lean, not so mean, triathlete. In 2009 Rodney got motivated to become active again after a long hiatus when a friend was paralyzed in a mountain biking accident. Soon Rodney was hooked, losing weight and looking for a reason to keep off the weight over the coming Canadian winter. He looked into triathlon, and Muskoka Ironman 70.3 seemed “reasonable”. After completing his first Sprint triathlon, Rodney went on to a 5:30 finish at Muskoka and has gone on to finish three half iron distance races as well as Ironman Lake Placid. Rodney is gunning for a 70.3 World Championship slot in 2012.
