After hearing these fateful words, "I am sorry, but you have cancer," young Navy officer David Glover turned to triathlon to prove to himself that although he had cancer, cancer did not have him. Since his first triathlon in 1995, he's now finished 100+ races including 28 Ironman-distance events. His stories about the Navy, cancer, failed relationships and becoming an elite level triathlete are captured in his autobiographical book: "Full Time and Sub-Nine," published in 2006. David now coaches aspiring athletes, organizes races and writes extensively. David is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy (with distinction) and has Masters degrees from both Catholic University and Eastern Michigan University.
