Canada! TeamEN is coming for you! Ironman® Mont Tremblant, set in the quaint Laurentian mountains of Quebec, Mont Tremblant is probably one of the most scenic Ironman® courses. Mont-Tremblant is also the home of the North American Ironman® Championship! Partly cloudy conditions with temps in the mid 70s (that’s the mid-20s celsius, for those of you north of the border) will prevail on Sunday. Let’s meet the team members who will be racing this beautiful course.
Born and raised in Northern California, but have lived in Dallas TX for the last 11 years.
10th year in triathlon, 7th Ironman® (one and only DNF, Coeur d’Alene ’09).
Senior Consultant at AT&T (wireless), going on 16 years.
Here in Mont Tremblant with a group of my local tri teammates, Fit2Train.
Hope to have a great experience, appreciate the scenery, and it wouldn’t hurt to get a PR as I’m feeling pretty fit this season!
From NJ. Been doing triathlons since 2010, so still new to the sport. I was instantly addicted. Did Lake Placid last July, finished it after getting real sick on the bike. Hopefully things work better this time. Been having a rough season with training, just moved the family into a new house. So I have been busy. Good luck to all EN athletes.
A bike crash and broken clavicle has sidelined me for Mont Tremblant this year. However I will be there as a personal sherpa to my Heather who is doing her 2nd IM to celebrate her 50th B-day , retirement from the FAA , and fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis. http://ironman.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1044169&lis=1&kntae1044169=C4252B2B6A95472D95B96A4023C1A3C2&supId=376335274
I will be doubling as official EN cheerleader and helper to anyone who needs it…. Please let me know… Cya out there !
From Solon, Ohio (Suburb of Cleveland). 2nd year in sport. I am a surgeon at University Hospitals Medical Center (Urologist). Race day goal is to finish, have fun, not get hurt and better my time from last year. I am a novice cyclist. Predicted finish time 1315 (last year was 1407); stretch goal is 125959.
“MRI shows a torn meniscus, surgery will be required.” That’s the news I got back in June after weeks of minimal recovery from a fall I took on a trail run in April. Not ideal for going into an Ironman. But, with the Dr’s OK, I decided to put off surgery until after Mont Tremblant and just did what I could to train up enough to swim/bike/walk as much of the race as possible. It was not easy, but I had a lot of support along the way (so many people to thank)! I’m a l’il peep from the flat lands of Nags Head, NC, an EN original gangsta, and this will be my 4th Ironman. My goal for Mont Tremblant is simply to have a wonderful time with my friends and husband Joe (or Mr Nemo to fellow ENers) and enjoy as much of the beautiful Mont Tremblant course as my knee will allow.
4 years in tris
goal – finish in one piece.
I’ve already finished 5 halves this year and signed up for two fulls. MT will be my second full since last year I did Wisconsin which I absolutely loved. Picking MT this year was an easy choice since I’ve spent most of my summers here in Montreal visiting family growing up. Originally, I’m from Los Angeles California born and raised one of the few Angelinos around these parts. I look forward to seeing a lot of you and meeting those who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting. Happy training and I’ll see you in a couple of more weeks.
I’m from the town of Hampton, NH. Married with three girls, ages 16-12. Own an Irish Pub in an old renovated Catholic Church called the “Holy Grail”. I have benn a triathlete for only 3.5 years, completed multiple sprinits, a few Oly’s, two HIM’s and Lake Placid last year. Mont Tremblant will be my second attempt at the Long Course. I have limited use of my left arm, so my swim times are slow(1::40), my Bike time was 6:50 in LP, I would like to take 45-50 min. off that time, and my run was 4:44 in LP, I would like to break 4:30 this time around. Of course just finishing is the Main Objective and to have fun!! I wish all of the racers a successful and safe race, see you UP there! GO EN!!
I am from Southeastern Pennsylvania and have been racing triathlons for 3 years.
I have previously completed several HIM races, including HMont Tremblant in June. My wife will also be racing at IMMT. We have four wonderful daughters. Their ages are: 17, 13, 10, and 7.
My only goals are: 1) to execute properly, and 2) finish before midnight. If I achieve goal 1, goal 2 will not be an issue.
I’m from Millburn, New Jersey and this is my fourth year racing triathlons and Mont Tremblant will be my second IM distance race. I am trying to become a better racer which is why I signed on with EN. While I may be fit for my age, my race execution is my biggest weakness – and I’ll be honest with ya, I suck at swimming, so that should tell ya something.
I would like to break 13 hours but more importantly I would like to execute a smooth and steady race, one that will leave me with legs that can at least jog 20 miles of that marathon.
It would also be nice to be able to smile and cheer on other ENers when I see them on the course.
I live in West Boylston, MA with my wife Erin, son Jack 12 and daughter Haley 11. I got into triathlon 5 years ago after playing and coaching college football. I raced at Lake Placid last year for my 1st IM and am looking forward to improving this year. EN has been great as my work and home schedule prevent me from training on a regular schedule. Good luck to everyone racing…..it’s all worth it!
My wife, Barbara, and I will be coming from St. Louis, Missouri. I started in triathlons in 1983 and raced until 1992. I thought it was more fun to waterski, hike, etc on the weekend than do long rides and runs. In 2005 I was persuaded into doing the swim portion of a tri relay. Really enjoyed it and signed up for a HIM at the end of the summer. Placed second in the age group and turned down an entry into Arizona (that is too long a race.) How things change! Last year I did the last St. George and then finished the season with IMAZ. Mont Tremblant will be my 3d IM. Really looking forward to the adventure. Main goal is to have fun. If I have a good race that will be good too.
