We recently had the opportunity to interview triathlete Chris Thomas, member of Team Timex since 2003. Based in Easton, CT, Chris, age 40, just came off a strong 2011 season. This fall he earned a second place finish in his age group at the 70.3 Ironman Championship in Nevada. He then placed 8th in his age group at Kona with a time of 9:07:08.
Our interview focused on hydration strategies he learned at the Team Timex base triathlon camp held at Giants Stadium in New Jersey a week ago. Go to www.Trijuice.com for the full story.
What keeps a guy like Chris pushing his limit in every training session and every race? It all comes down to addiction to the sport he told us.
It is in his blood. He began running road races at a very early age. In college, he played hockey for Fairfield University.
At the end of his hockey career, he told us he needed to find the "next outlet." He eventually found his way to triathlons in 1999 and that was it. "I was addicted," he told us.
We wish him the best of luck as he prepares for Eagleman, his first "A" race of the season.
