Rex Loco

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!
