My name is Brandon Goodermont and I live in Southern California, where I was for the most part born and raised. I have three boys and an amazing wife of almost 14 years. The same amazing wife that supports the insanity that is IRONMAN training alongside a full time 50 - 60 hour a week job. I am the General Manager of a high volume, domestic auto franchise that fortunately isn't too far from home.
I have been a cyclist for a number of years off and on, however I started endurance cycling about four years ago. I found myself looking for a new challenge when a friend suggested triathlon. I started racing triathlon only two years ago and have since competed four (other) short track races along with two 70.3 and four full IRONMAN distance races. I was recruited to Smile Train after my first full IRONMAN in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and absolutely fell in love with every aspect of what we were doing. I try to live everyday to accomplish two things.... "Motivate and Inspire." The thought of supporting a great cause in lockstep with an activity that requires so much passion, drive, and commitment along with everything that is the Smile Train organization makes this journey even more rewarding.
