My Story | By Patrick Brady
Life is a compilation of a million tiny moments. How we react in those moments shapes who we are. How we remember those moments shapes who we become. My life to this point has been an interesting story but there is one moment in particular that inspired me to become a professional triathlete.
In 2006 I moved to Madison, WI and landed a job at a Wisconsin cheese store on State Street. My daily routine revolved around school and work. Free cheese-themed lunches and Babcock Hall ice cream did not lend themselves to a healthy lifestyle. I was slowly losing connection with my former athletic self.
Then in September of 2008 I witnessed the Ironman Wisconsin race from the window of that State Street cheese store. I watched as the professionals ran by and was frozen in awe. I made a promise to myself that someday I would be one of them.
It was not an easy road. I had never swam in my life and could barely make it across the pool. My first ride was a mere 25 miles and I had to walk my bike home. Yet after 8 years of hard work and a breakthrough 2014 amateur season, I earned my professional license in dramatic fashion at Timberman 70.3.
I am proof that if you want something bad enough you can have it. You have to be willing to work for it though. You have to be patient, live in the moment, draw strength from your past, always believe and never quit.
Now, I strive to achieve my next dream. An Ironman event title, and to race with the best in the world at the Ironman World Championships at both the half and full distance. I understand, just as with my first dream, that this will take time. But I know I have the tools, potential, and dedication to achieve them. I have no doubts.
