Charlie Wittmack knew, at age 15, that the trip he dreamed up sounded ridiculous.
Swim the English Channel. Jump on a bike and ride from France to Nepal. Then climb Mount Everest.
So he kept the dream – what he now calls the World Triathlon – to himself. But he started taking small steps toward his goal, despite false starts and failures. That, he would learn over the next 18 years, is how you reach great heights in the adventure called life.
