Dan O’Neill is my triathlon coach. Dan is an extremely inspirational man who has completed 3 Ironman races, written a book and been a part of raising several hundred thousand dollars for Kids with Cancer.
In this interview we talk about the motivation behind competing in such an extreme endurance event. We talk about the fact that these events are being completed by a larger variety of demographics and that age and body type is becoming much less of a barrier.
We talk about work/life balance and how perhaps work/life integration is a better approach. Dan tells us how he used his journey to Ironman as a healing process. Dan went from childhood abuse to completing three Ironman. He talks about how he had to make the concious decision to not be a victim.
Dan shares his story of writing and ultimately publishing his book and the mental discipline it took to actually do that.
