Recently I had the good fortune of talking triathlon with TCSD member Paula Munoz.  Paula was elected TCSD Secretary this past fall and has worn many hats for the club over the years.  I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Paula and I know you will, as well.

I had the pleasure recently of talking triathlon with Steve Banister, our most recent President. Steve did an awesome job as President the past 2 years. Please join me as we get to know a great guy who has given selflessly to the club and our community, but who also happens to be a pretty fast triathlete.

I got to talk triathlon with the TCSD’s most recent World Champion Kyle Hummel.  It will blow your mind to hear what Kyle has gone through just to be able to walk around like a normal guy.  He has come so far to become the Ironman 70.3 World Champion for the men’s 30-34 age group.  He is an awesome athlete who really appreciates the gifts he has been blessed with.  I know you will enjoy getting to know Kyle.

I had the pleasure recently of chatting triathlon with TCSD Ambassador Andrew Shore.  Andrew actually started a triathlon club when he lived on the east coast so he brings a wealth of knowledge to our club.  And this dude can swim like a fish!

I recently had the opportunity to talk triathlon with a guy who has no fear.  Jay Lewis is not afraid to try anything.  Jay is not afraid to try any sport or change careers and he certainly has not been afraid to get involved in a leadership role with TCSD.  Please join me and get to know Jay!

I had the very rewarding opportunity recently to talk triathlon with Kat Gunsur.  Kat wears a lot of triathlon hats including that as the TCSD’s Social Media Director.  She is a huge part of the process that puts us on the map and gives our club world-wide visibility.  Kat is also very focused on helping others as you will see by her work with Team Challenge.
