31. Connor Emeny: Living an Intentional Life

Connor Emeny learned about the importance of encouraging and motivating others while playing ball hockey with his older brothers. In University, Connor and two friends tried out for the triathlon club to meet new people and it was that experience that prepared him for his biggest challenge. In 2016, Connor set a goal to complete his first Ironman after a teammate at university competed at the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. Four years later, Connor achieved his goal when he became an Ironman in New Zealand; however, Connor wanted more. Connor is aiming to be the youngest person to complete an Ironman on 6 continents.

Focus on building your life resume and not your paper resume. Go after things that scare you, that are so big and audacious, that you put them on your piece of paper and you keep going back to them. Those are the things that are worth pursuing

Connor Emeny

When Connor was informed the Taiwan Ironman would be postponed due to the pandemic, he decided to put his training to good use by completing the 4 x 4 x 48 challenge over New Years Eve in the Rocky Mountains; the challenge, made famous by American ultrarunner David Goggins, requires participants to run four miles every four hours for 48 hours and tests runners both physically and mentally.

For Connor’s next project, he decided to challenge his fellow Canadians with the introduction of Project 24. What started as a small idea for a few runners to run as far as they can in 24 hours, resulted in over $1,000 raised for charity and over 1,500 kilometres!

Connor experiences are a great example of living an intentional life!
