My name is John Topacio and on 13 September 2009, every part of my body failed but one, my mind.

It was on that day I competed in Ironman Wisconsin. Over the course of swimming, biking and running 140.6 miles (226.2 km) in 15 hours and 46 minutes, I burned 15,000+ calories, threw up while cycling, experienced cramps in all major muscle groups and suffered heat exhaustion. Despite all that, I still successfully crossed the finish line.

Shortly after, something unexpected happened—“can’t” left my vocabulary. That’s because my mind proved to the rest of my body that word doesn’t exist if you don’t want it to.

Although I’m an associate creative director/copywriter who now uses one less word, fortunately there are still hundreds of thousands left at my disposal. Take a look at my work to see how I put a few of them to work. Hopefully I have the type of thinking you’re looking for.
