2XU Ambassador, Shane "Zenman" Eversfield shares his story and the practice of Zendurance

Perhaps the long, and winding story of how Shane Eversfield, aka Zenman, came to be a figure in the endurance community is best told by him

It all started like this... I was just a coffee farmer living in South Kona, Hawaii.

For 8 years, I did not dare go downtown during that big week every October. That’s when the fittest athletes in the world gather for Hawaii Ironman.  I’d never done a triathlon. But somehow I knew the Almighty Ironman had plans for me. I just wasn’t ready to “get bit and branded” yet...

Well, in 1998, I finally gave in. I volunteered at the Mile 18 Run Aid Station at the 1998 Hawaii Ironman.Yes, I got bit. And, I got infected. A month later, I did my first triathlon – the local Thanksgiving Day “Turkey Tri”.  Eleven months after that, at 6:55 am, October 23, 1999 I was treading water at the starting line of Hawaii Ironman. I was damn lucky to be there because that Ironman quest for glory had almost killed me.
