RICK OLIVER COMPLETES IRONMAN
Good morning Kenyon! I’m not sure if you remember me, but we met about 2 years ago in Bismarck, ND. Ann Reich (from the North Dakota Bankers Association) had you up to do a presentation and then you attended a baseball game with Ann and her husband Dave. My wife and I also joined you and the Reichs at the game where we had a chance to visit a bit.
I wanted to let you know that your presentation helped inspired me to register, train for, and complete an Ironman triathlon. It was something I had wanted to do my whole life but never seriously considered signing up for until hearing your presentation. I have since completed Ironman Louisville in October 2018, Ironman Boulder in June 2019, and am registered for Ironman Wisconsin in September 2019 and Ironman Lake Placid in July 2020.
I am always asked why I wanted to do the race and I have many reasons – but your presentation was the turning point in saying Yes and signing up for this event. Thank you for what you do and keep living your best life! Have a great day!

PETER “TRAVELS BY DART” TO MACHU PICCHU
The energy and excitement of winning Travel-By-Dart was only the beginning. What came next was a trip of a lifetime – trekking across mountains, ancient history and stunning visages in and around Machu Picchu, Peru! Thank you Kenyon and The Bucket List Life!
DEB SAID “YES” TO A LIFE-CHANGING SKYDIVE
I wanted to thank you as your message really resonated with me personally. My late husband (teacher/coach) died way too young in 2012 after a 2-year battle with cancer. Through it all, we tried to reframe “what cancer can’t do” to “what cancer CAN do” and say yes to LIFE. (I loved your superhero story – Dave was hospitalized over Christmas so, IV pole in tow, he took our therapy dog to the children’s ward & passed out presents.)
Even so, death took the wind out of my sails for a time. A friend (my current husband) who was Army Special Forces in his youth, encouraged me to do a tandem jump. I said sure – can’t be scarier than cancer, right? It was an awesome, liberating experience. My instructor’s mom had survived cancer – we had an amazing experience & I will never be the same. I left a lot of junk up in the clouds & landed with a new perspective to rejoin the world and move forward. I started traveling with my sister, remarried, and am always up for a new adventure! Your presentation reminded me to up the ante & keep the momentum going.
So – thank you. I love the example you’re setting for your children & the impact you’re having in the world – STAY UP ON THAT LADDER!!
