Organizer since:

September 11, 2012

Tell us a little about your triathlon experience so far...

I've done a couple of smaller tri's and then jumped in with both feet for my IM in 2005. I loved the whole process of getting ready... the early mornings; the change of seasons; spring flowers on the bike loop; warm water in Lake Monona; being able to eat whatever I wanted... but the day itself was just a long day! My goal was to finish... it wasn't that hard. I did it again in 2013 and took around 30 mins off my time. I am the fountain of youth! ;)

What are you looking for most from this group...

A way to connect swimmers, bikers and runners... either as individuals or into small groups... especially for training purposes. I think the discussion board will prove to be most useful.

What neighborhood do you live in... (eg. Hilldale, Vilas, Verona)

Madison - Hilldale... close to Hamilton Middle School.


My name is Chris, originally from England. I teach elementary PE. Soccer is my primary sport but I also play sand volleyball. I have done 7 marathons w/ a PR of 3':17"- a long time ago! In 05 I completed IM WI and set a PR of 13hrs 52mins in 2013!
