Joe Esposito aka the Zippy Pig
I have been a triathlete since 1986 and accomplished many things in the sport, but finally achieved a goal that I feared was impossible – I have learned who the Zippy Pig is.  Please join me as we get to know Joe Esposito aka the Zippy Pig.

I talked Ironman with John Holman who finished his 1st Hawaiian Ironman on 10/16 in 16:48:12. John had a great race finishing 22nd in the men’s 65-69 age category. I encourage you to eavesdrop on some of that conversation.

Debbie Gallo
I had the chance recently to talk triathlon with the Tri Club’s very own Debbie Gallo.  Debbie had a podium performance at the Ironman World Championships in Kona on 10/16/04 placing 4th in the women’s 50-54 age group with a time of 13:16:59.

This month’s article is more of a summer vacation story I wanted to share about our trip to France and Denmark taken by my wife, Laurie Kearney, and I.  The focus of the France portion was to spectate at the Tour de France.  We continued onto Denmark for me to race in the Duathlon Long Course World Championships.

Please listen in on the conversation I had with Kim Brown, the Tri Club’s nutritionist the past couple of years and Kona qualifier.  Kim qualified for the Hawaiian Ironman with her 4:56:00 performance which placed her 3rd among women 25-29 at the Half Vineman.

Rob Evans

I recently talked Ironman with Rob Evans, a TCSD member who qualified for Kona with his stellar performance at Ironman Coeur d’Alene.  Rob finished IM CDA in 10:15:21, placing him 13th in the tough men’s 40-44 age category.
