Being a basketball player from an early age, Jeremiah always enjoyed getting his heart rate up. When he married a little spit-fire who loved to run he decided to see if he would like running. After several years of running, Jeremiah decided he wanted a more complicated challenge. So on his 30th birthday he, along with his little spitfire wife, competed in their first Olympic triathlon. It was love at first sight!
Jeremiah’s race highlights include… not dying. Being beat on the swim by Kelly Sullivan. Sobbing like a baby while crossing the Ironman finish line. Oh then there’s race results too 🙂

Why he’s Loco: Jeremiah is a 6’3, 200 plus-pound dude that should be doing crossfit, football or WWE. Instead he decided to ride a small carbon fiber frame downhill at 60 MPH!
Goals in the Sport: To be the best athlete I can be, to give it my all at every race, to smile often and talk to strangers!
Favorite Post Race Food: I’m obsessed with tacos, but my favorite post-race food is pizza. On a side note, I once pounded an entire bottle of Muscle milk at the end of a 70.3… I almost exploded. Doooo NOT do that ever!!!
Favorite Song to Train to: I love wearing music when I swim, but my favorite music when riding and running is my team mates conversation. It is perhaps my favorite part of this sport!
Words to Live By: This changes often, but right now my favorite is “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just soft people”. I don’t picture myself as something special but I love to push the limits
What does Train Hard, Race Smart & Give Back mean to you: Every day is an opportunity to be healthy and train. I am thankful for every day I get to train and be active. It’s a gift from God. I love the challenge of trying to execute a race perfectly, the entire process fascinates me. Giving back in the form of support to other endurance athletes is the best part of triathlon – We are a giant family! Mostly I love that we can do what we love, and raise awareness and money for people and communities in need!
