5:07 a.m. is a good time of the day. It's just shortly after the YMCA opens, and it's about the time I walk out of the locker room, either onto the pool deck or toward the track. I'm awake and ready to hit the morning's workout.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
