KOKUA!

I’m Ken Chin, aka daRevoluCHIN.

In 2006, I was perfecting being a pro couch potato and Dorito eater. In 2007, I started to run and did my first marathon. About 7 marathons later, I realized I formed an addiction. But, that addiction got boring. So, I decided that I wanted to mix it up a bit in 2011 when I signed up for a 2012 IRONMAN when I couldn’t even swim. *GASP* Yeah, I know. But I got it done and boy was that a TOUGH JOURNEY!

I really thought that it was that one time bucket list item that I would not want to do again. But, I thought the same thing about running marathons. So, 2013 had me training again; AND, we all know how THAT turned out! 

So, I’m seeking a little redemption this year – with my swimming skills being much more refined thanks to the Chicago Blue Dolphins – and am on schedule to be at IRONMAN Kansas 70.3 in June and IRONMAN Boulder 140.6 in August. I will once again be on the IRONMAN Foundation – Newton Running Ambassador Triathlon Team, bringing awareness to the IRONMAN Foundation and how it supports the communities in which we race!

My efforts will benefit the IRONMAN Foundation’s Community Fund Program, supporting service projects that will be conducted in the race communities to assist local initiatives.

Through the team, I am able to make my journey to become a two-time IRONMAN one with a cause! Please help support my mission of supporting the local communities that host these IRONMAN events and know that any amount goes a LONG way and is tax-deductible!

$3,000 seems like a long way, but I know that it will be easily accomplished with your support!

The goal of The IRONMAN Foundation-Newton Running Tri Team is to “create an action that happens once in time but has existing or lasting results or an action that happens continually or progressively.” The team will create a moment to impact people, that does it in a way to build a legacy.

Kokua is a Hawaiian word that translates as “extending loving, sacrificial help to others for their benefit, not for personal gain. Through our Kokua, we hope to leave the world a better place.

Through the support of the team, The IRONMAN Foundation will partner with a local charity to leave our KOKUA in the IRONMAN race Communities. Please help us leave a lasting legacy behind in our race community and contribute ANY amount. Your tax-deductible contribution will go a long way and you can do so here:

Training With Purpose #TriTeamForGood


In 2006, I was perfecting being a pro couch potato and Dorito eater. In 2007, I started to run and did my first marathon. About 7 marathons later, I realized I formed an addiction. But, that addiction got boring. So, I decided that I wanted to mix it up a bit in 2011 when I signed up for a 2012 IRONMAN when I couldn’t even swim. *GASP* Yeah, I know. But I got it done in September of last year, and boy was that a TOUGH JOURNEY!

I really thought that it was that one time bucket list item that I would not want to do again. But, I thought the same thing about running marathons. So, 2013 has me training again. But, this time I’m not doing it for myself.

I have the 2013 Ironman 70.3 Steelhead on August 4th and Ironman Wisconsin on September 8th on the schedule. And, to make this training and event participation more special, I will be fundraising as part of the inaugural Ironman Foundation – Newton Running Ambassador Triathlon Team.

My efforts will benefit the Ironman Foundation, Inc.’s Community Fund Program, supporting service projects that will be conducted in the race communities to assist local initiatives.

Through the team, I am able to make my journey to become a two-time IRONMAN one with a cause! Please help support my mission of supporting the local communities that host these IRONMAN events and know that any amount goes a LONG way and is tax-deductible! $3,000 seems like a long way, but I know that it will be easily accomplished with your support!
