Blessing in disguise...

I am not a blogger, do not pretend to be a blogger, but I do like to reflect on life a lot; where I have been, where I am, and where am I heading. Recently my website www.ironworksathletics.com was hacked and compromised to a point beyond repair. I am blessed that 99.9% of my business comes from taking care of my customers, so referrals are plentiful. I do need a website to "legitimize" my business but it is not mission critical. I still can't figure out how a fax machine works, re-creating a website seemed daunting. 

God, puts amazing people in my life just at the right time. Enter Griffin Jaworski. Griffin recently relocated to Des Moines from Florida/Auburn so his wife Erika could attend DMU. I was introduced to Griffin from another friend Jeff Bratz. Griffin took on the task of designing a website for me. My old site was "tired", hard to update, so it didn't get much attention. My instructions to Griffin were, "keep it simple". In a couple short weeks... introducing www.ironworks-athletics.com. 

My goal is to keep the site updated weekly with new topics, recipes, thoughts...things I think about daily.

To the person who hacked my site, THANK YOU!

Ironman Wisconsin 2017

Welcome All!

The Ironworks team is gearing up for Ironman Wisconsin! We have several new faces, along with some seasoned veterans, with ages ranging from 23 to, well, let's just say 23+. 

2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking, and 26.2 miles of running may seem like a daunting task, but when you get an energetic group like this together it seems like a walk in the park.

So if you are interested in maybe doing an Ironman one day, or want to support the team from afar, this blog is the place for you! Every so often, we will take a moment to pause, reflect, and highlight some of our athletes.
