Ascent’s Own “IronMen”
On behalf of Ascent Venture Partners, I’d like to congratulate Partner Matt Fates and VP of Finance Tom Scanlon for what I consider to be a pretty amazing accomplishment – completing an Ironman Triathlon.
Cheered on by friends, family and thousands of supportive spectators at Mont-Tremblant in Quebec on August 19th, Matt and Tom completed a 2.4-mile swim in Tremblant Lake, a 112-mile bike trek through Mont-Tremblant’s forests and mountains, and finished with a marathon that stretched 26.2-miles.
We are extremely proud of our resident IronMen, and congratulate them on their outstanding accomplishment. But that does not afford them any special treatment here in the office; in fact I think we should expect even more from anyone called an Ironman.
