This week: We recap Ironman Lake Placid and we catch up with Dan Berlin, a blind endurance athlete, cyclist and Ironman. Dan is a member of Team See Possibilities. Dan Berlin and his guides go on epic endurance challenges never done before by a blind athlete, inspiring each individual, with or without disabilities, to go beyond their perceived limitations. They share inspiring stories about their history-making challenges with local children and their communities, and through the media, share them with the world.
Dan is the Co-founder and CEO of Rodelle, a world leading vanilla extract company, Dan grew up in the chocolate town of Hershey, Pennsylvania and now lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his wife and two children. Over the course of twenty years, Dan gradually lost his eyesight from cone-rod dystrophy. He struggled with the limitations of his new reality, but instead of simply feeling sorry for himself, he came up with a new way to approach the rest of his life.
He decided, despite his blindness, to become a marathoner. Dan has since run twelve marathons, including NYC and Boston, completed several triathlons, was the first blind athlete to run across the Grand Canyon and back, ran the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in less than 13 hours, and recently completed his greatest challenge to date: climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in two and a half days. Contact details below.
