David, I just received my copy of "Athlete" yesterday and watched it last night. You did a beautiful job of capturing the essence of not just those athletes in the documentary, but in all of us. Thank you for making this film.

Definitely fascinating, but it probably scared the crap out of most the "newbie's" wanting to get into the sport :)

Did you ever see "What it Takes?" It's about four Pro Ironman athletes....it was a major bummer of a movie. Meaning, it was good in the respect that it talked about Tri, training for an Ironman, etc., but it was not motivating at all, and I wouldn't be surprised if it scared some viewers away from the sport. Divorce, injuries, etc....not very good for people wanting to get into triathlon.

Hey David,

Way cool on the documentary! I have coached over 500 athletes from 13 to 80, from skinny to obese, with mental conditions to healthy as a horse, and I am always amazed most by my athletes who were dealt a raw deal in life. All of my age-groupers and/or elites are great, but I LOVE my athletes that have never participated in any sports in their lives.

About Me:
An award-winning graphic designer and director of the endurance sports documentary "ATHLETE". A film about four everyday Americans — a cancer survivor, a blind senior citizen and twin sisters — who compete in triathlons and marathons and are redefining what it means to be an 'athlete'.

The idea behind the documentary "ATHLETE" came from my experience running three marathons in New York, London and Chicago between 2004 and 2005.

During those three marathons, I noticed the diverse group of individuals running these races. Not only in terms of the different sizes, shapes and ages of the participants, but the reasons behind each person’s commitment to train and run 26.2 miles. It changed my view of what defines an athlete and inspired me to make a documentary about it.

I filmed "ATHLETE" on location at top triathlons including Ironman Lake Placid (16-hour shoot), Mighty North Fork, Tupper Lake, Finger Lakes and Nautica New York City.
