Endurance Nation has 17 folks racing at Canada this Sunday. All we have to say is Penticton is about to get a lesson in EN Ninja Race Execution! Will be a blast to watch.
Meet a few of our team below.
I’m Jenn Edwards and Canada will be my second Ironman® and my second Canada in a row! I got into the sport in 2006 when a friend of mine asked me to do a “Tri-It” class. Soon enough my hubby Mark was on board and that summer we all finished our first sprint. Since then I’ve made the triathlon lifestyle change, lost 80 pounds and continue to improve my performance. In fact, my top secret plan is to improve until I’m the only one left in my age group and they HAVE to send me to Kona. I like Canada because it’s within driving distance and Mark (Cap’n Mark, officially) is able to participate as a swim course marshal with our boat – he’s getting pretty good at pulling out green-faced swimmers! At Canada I’m hoping to execute like a ninja!

Murrieta, CA. This will be IM #25. I have done Canada 5 times but not since 1999 when I signed up in June. How times have changed. I am looking to survive the scrum known as the swim. I will start off slow on the bike and taper from there. I hope to gain some energy from the wonderful crowds along the course and volunteers. My One Thing will be to get my nutrition down and keep it down so that I can have a strong second half of the run. I will be accompanied by my Iron Sherpa Extraordinaire, Brenda, my wife. My attached photo is Brenda and me along with our dogs with the Stanley Cup. I figure it will give me some good mojo in addition to the Team En mojo that will be split between IM Lou and IMC!!
My name is Brendan Shannon and I am a 26 year old from Pasadena, CA. I have done four halfs (Wildflowex2, Vineman, Lubbock). Canada will be my first IM.
After a bad crash last season that left me with a broken scapula (yes, scapula) , It was great to recover fully and be back on the trial of miles… Im looking forward to meeting some fellow ENers in Canada and putting the EN tools into full effect.
