MORE ABOUT KEITH


I absolutely love being a part of this team! We are all very much friends sharing a love of a sport and fitness.

Since moving here from Illinois in 2005 Triathlon has become an even bigger part of my life. It is so much easier to stay fit here in Southern California!

My first triathlon was in 1992 in a Olympic distance Tri with my 2 older brothers competing in the relay division. It has been part of my lifestyle since then. I have not competed for all of these years as it really is the training that I love. In fact for about 10 years I did not race but a few times. I still love training more than racing but have figured out how to pace in races, and in life, the key for me is consistency. I like to train for and race the 1/2 iron distance. That distance allows me time to spend with my family. I have had to promise my family to limit the ironman races because of the time I am away from home (they actually thought I promised to never do another full again).
