Luke vs. Triathlon

This year I’ve had the pleasure of coaching an amazing individual, Luke Gulbrand. He approached me in early 2014 about running and triathlon coaching which rolled into Ironman Wisconsin coaching. Not too long before the race Luke launched a new Facebook page and started a blog about his journey. Luke’s challenges with triathlon are unlike those that most of us face. He has Crohn’s Disease, which has made simply completing some workout challenging, much less an entire Ironman.

Luke persevered last Sunday and not only completed the race, but posted a great time of 14:41:09. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

To read more about Luke’s story and his plans moving forward, visit his blog, Facebook page, or check out the news story that he was recently feature in.

Next time you think you can’t make it through a tough workout or a grueling race, think of Luke. He did.
