Hello, my name is Blake Anderson, I am 36 years old, and am a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. Nearly three years ago I decided to change who I was and started running. I lost 50 pounds in 60 days...and in three years have done two Ironman triathlons, and three ultra marathons...the last one, the Los Angeles 100 Mile Endurance Challenge Ultra Marathon, I won and set the course record. Since, a video of the changes I have made in my life has opened up many opportunities for me:
Recently, the video has made it to the final public voting round at the Ironman website:
On JUNE 29TH-JULY 8TH my video goes up for public vote. If I win, I will be sent to Kona to compete in the Ironman World Championship. Friends, I need your help with votes. Voting can be done through the direct link:

Or friends can get info from my Facebook fan page at:

The life I have lived and the video I have made is a testament to the fact that change is possible. And it was running that helped me change from living a bad lifestyle to living a good one...I went from last to first place!

Warmest regards,

Blake Anderson
