My time has been very limited to metal detect the last couple of years. I have been training to compete in an Ironman race. So my find totals have been way down.

Last year I completed a Half Ironman in Princeton NJ. This consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run. It was such an awesome feeling when I crossed the finish line.

This year I am registered to compete in a Full Ironman in Panama City Florida in November. This is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride & a 26 mile run. It has to be completed in 16 hours.

So most of my spare time is dedicated to exercise of some sort. My ultimate goal is to complete the Kona Ironman in Hawaii. This is where it all began.

When you cross the finish line the announcer says your name and says You Are An Ironman! So when he says “Dave Milsted you are an Ironman”, you just might be able to find me with a metal detector as long as you don’t discriminate iron…
