Leigh Parker

Leigh has been a life-long runner and swimmer, and was introduced to the sport of triathlon in 2011 by Rob, aka Dr. Insanity, a month after completing treatment for thyroid cancer. She is a Nutrition Professional at The Fit Life Nutrition, and has also started a triathlon club at the college to drag students into the wonderful world of triathlon!

Leigh’s athletic accomplishments include finishing her first Half Marathon (Schroon Lake 2015) in 1:47, just weeks before completing her first Ironman in Louisville in 13:21! Placing 2nd in her Age group at the HITS Kingston 2015, and placing 1st overall in HITS Hunter 2014!

Why she is LOCO:  Nothing stops Leigh! The more she gets knocked down, whether from cancer, car accidents, or people that tell her she can’t, the harder she tries!
