Kale Bushmeyer and Josh Zeigler after IRONMAN 70.3 Steelhead - Benton Harbor, MichiganMy 38th Birthday arrived so quickly that I forgot to publish my new for the year! Some people set a goal each year on New Year’s Day. I set as many as my upcoming age from birthday to birthday. Much more of the same for my 38th trip around the sun, with a focus on getting things done at home. I’m still working and training hard. This winter, I’m hoping to get on board with the “Fill The Sleeves” initiative and start working on my upper body and arm strength.
