After cheering in Ironman Lake Placid with Team Loco, Rex decided to quit his day job and become a full time Loco! He enjoys chasing runners who need extra motivation, and heckling cyclists at local cyclocross races. Rex has made appearances at the Lake George Tri, Stockade-athon, the Hairy Gorilla Half and the Bethlehem Turkey Trot. He can often be spotted wearing a Sombrero or Santa hat, but his favorite accessory is his Hawaiian lei!
Goals in the Sport: Swim in Mirror Lake with Team Loco. Be the first dinosaur to complete a triathlon. Cheer at the Finish line of the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI!
Why he is LOCO: Rex always brings a smile to the faces of his fellow triathletes, offering high-fives and encouraging grunts from the sidelines! From the swim start of a race to the last stretch of the the run, Rex goes the extra mile to support his team – He cheered from 6:30am until midnight at IMLP!
Favorite Post Race Food: Runners
Favorite Song to Train to: Like the rest of Team Loco, Rex adores any song by Taylor Swift!
Words to Live by: Argghhhh!
