Vigo Sighting

VigoThis was just so stinking cool. Over the weekend, I raced in the USA Triathlon Mid Atlantic regional championship at Atlantic City NJ. Upon my arrival on race morning I ran into a great friend and wonderful human being in Rob Vigorito. As USAT Regional Chair, “Vigo” was there to help out with the race. Vigo and I have a great history and go back to 2004 when I started racing a number of his Tri Columbia events. Vigo was also very instrumental in my leukemia treatments and healing in many ways. I posted the following photo and text on social media:

It’s a GOOD day when you get to the race and have an opportunity to hang out with one outstanding human in Rob Vigo Vigorito! It was Vigo’s Chesapeakman Iron Distance Race that I did a few months after my initial chemo treatments in 2006. Vigo gets 100% of the credit for naming me “Remissionman”. #triac2017″

The awesome part was this comment I got on my post from a total stranger to me who is friends with Vigo:

“Wow! I raced that event and remember your family at the school with all kinds of signs and cheering about the “Remissionman”. Awesome stuff! Never did know who it was till just now”.

Love that stuff.
