BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- "It's easy to make excuses and talk yourself out of getting through difficult situations. You have to learn to fight those demons that tell you to quit. With that in mind, I qualified for the 2016 Ironman World Championship next October in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. If you think about the big picture, an Ironman seems overwhelming and impossible. But if you break it down into checkpoints, then you can work your way through. It's a mentality you have to practice in your workouts. If you aren't prepared to push yourself through pain and adversity, then when that moment comes to quit, you will."
