  1. Hi Dave
    What is going on in your life these days?
    Sorry I missed you when you were in town for the reunion a couple of years ago. Drop me a email and let’s set a time to talk.
    Later Ed

  2. Congratulations David! Rob Paynter here. I am out here on my honeymoon and watched the Ironman yesterday in the streets of Couer d’Alene. Very cool to see my neighbor from Winston Salem finish in style! Nice triumph!

  3. David, I recently became aware of you from your fantastic posts on Slowtwitch. As a 51 year-old IM virgin, I am racing IMAZ in 13 days. Any last minute advice you might share would be greatly appreciated. I have put in the time & training and have gone from … I wonder IF I can finish??? to I wonder what my finishing time will be??? My personal goals are: Finish standing up, with a smile on my face, avoiding the medical tent, before midnight! I have completed (4) 1/2 IM in the past 36 months. Sincerely, Clint

    • Hi Clint,
      Thank you so much for your note!
      I’m not sure I have any magic words, but I will share some thoughts:
      1. Believe in YOU! The greatest human fear is not that we are weak, but that we are powerful beyond measure.
      2. Positive attitude makes you faster – See:
      3. Keep your head in the game.
      a. Nutrition – you have practiced this now execute with precision
      b. Pace – particularly on the bike ride one gear easier than you makes sense. You want to be fresh at 80 miles
      c. Mind – Let no one or nothing upset you. Sometimes Ironman racing becomes crisis management – flat tire, upset stomach, a kick in the eye, etc. Be ready for it and deal with it. Do not let it stop you or throw you off. Just like life, keep on going.
      4. You have done the work and the race is your reward. It is a voluntary endeavor so enjoy every minute. It is your day!
      5. Leave a positive lasting memory on at least one other person who you don’t know.
      6. Thank and honor your family and others who helped you get to the finish.
      7. A prayer, possibly out loud, just before the start seems to help.

      Best wishes and please update me on your success. We welcome you to the Ironman family!

  4. Hi David,

    While researching Swedish goggles I came across your posts on Slowswitch. I’m starting a goggle company and plan on launching in a month or two. I have a swede style goggle that I need some unbiased opinions on, would you be interested in product testing these for me?

    Thank you for your time,

  5. David:
    Congrats on being under 12 hours! Your swim time still impressive for such an old guy! I’m riding 2-3 times this week in Waynesville. Looking for some good fall colors while we ride. Keep trucking’ buddy!
