Clermont

Justin MetzlerUncategorized

Life has its ups and life has its downs. That is what I have learned over the last two weeks. One minute it can feel like you are watching paint dry and the next minute it is flying by at 100 MPH.

2014 Ironman 70.3 Augusta

Justin MetzlerUncategorized

Adios 2014! Thanks for the good times. I don’t think any of us really expected me to have this successful of a first professional season. 8 top-ten’s, 5 top-five’s and 4 races where I earned prize money- it is really unbelievable.
