Nick Cicerchi – feeling great with Team MaccaX!

Just a reflection… The 2012 Cleveland Triathlon was my first Olympic Distance race, finishing in 3 hours and 9 minutes bottoming out my age group. Life was different. I was out of shape and thought the race would kill me. Not knowing what or where I was going, I soon after joined MaccaX and a whole new world opened to me…

Fast forward to Sunday, finishing same race 52 minutes faster, I felt strong and fresh. It’s true that you are who you surround yourself with. All of you in MaccaX have opened new possibilities. Tim Ford inspires to improve my OD time by a full hour. Encouraged by the group I know it is possible.

Like my FB news feed filled with your inspiring and entertaining posts, crowding out all fodder from the past. Thanks everyone for creating this environment. My face shows I’m a bit happier than a few years ago…
