Cro-Mag Triathlete, Goals and Dreams, SI Sportskids OTY

Cro-Mag Triathlete John Joseph

If you were a fan of punk rock in the late 1980's, it was hard to miss the Cro-Mags. Kind of neat that they are still around, though it's been a while since I listened to their music. Turns out that their frontman, John Joseph, is a triathlete -- featured in the February 2013 issue of Triathlete magazine to boot. "John Joseph swims, bikes and runs by day and stage dives by night. The hard-living frontman of the 80s seminal punk rock band The Cro-Mags, Joseph may seem like an unlikely triathlete. But beneath the tattooed surface, there's a fierce competitor answering the universal appeal of a life-changing challenge: Ironman." Love when disparate parts of my world collide.

Love this image and quote -- such a simple way to look at goals and dreams.

Imagine being so young and so with it -- amazing story! "9-year-old Conner Long wanted to get closer to his brother Cayden, who has cerebral palsy. So while most brothers are playmates, and friends, these two have become teammates by competing in triathlons together. The Long brothers are the 2012 Sportskids of the Year."
