Meet Tom, Y Staff & Top Triathlon Competitor

Our very own Tom will be running in our 10th Annual Race for the Future 5K Walk/Run! Tom started running triathlons to stay healthy and set goals. After he ran his first, he was hooked--it was fun!

Tom ran his first triathlon in 2015 in Lake Brandt, North Carolina, when his sister convinced him to participate. Though he says he wasn't in good shape and didn't do very well, he still had fun! With a background in swimming, Tom wasn't worried about the running portion of the triathlons but found the biking scary at first. Before he grew used to triathlons, riding a bike for 12.5 miles seemed tiring and excessive.

The races give him an opportunity to set a goal for himself and his own improvement and help promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

 

Join Tom and the rest of the Y family for our race, coming up on Oct. 12th!
