Join Team in Training for the 2017 Lavaman Triathlon on the Big Island of Hawaii

“The friendships you form, what some of my teammates call their Ohana, which is the Hawaiian word for family, is the best thing about Team In Training (TNT). However, this cause became very personal when my wife Sally was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in January 2015.”

12991070_10153436071172624_3295975128136231008_nFast-forward nine months. In November 2015, Todd, Sally and many of their friends from Denver formed Team Sally to take on the Lavaman Waikoloa Triathlon – with the ambitious goal of raising $100,000 as a team. Only 5 short months after finishing chemotherapy treatment, Sally was training for her first triathlon.

Training in the Colorado winter doesn’t usually replicate Lavaman’s tropical race day conditions in Kona, Hawaii. The team pushed through the often cold and icy runs, bike and brick workouts as one Team – knowing that what they were enduring was not near as bad as the treatments that Sally went through earlier that year. Some joined the team just for Sally, others joined for their own heroes who have battled cancer. But on April 10, 2016, all 38 members of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Team In Training crossed the finish line – knowing they had raised over $150,000 for life-saving cancer research.

The 2017 Lavaman Waikoloa Triathlon takes place on April 2 – and the Denver TNT team is about to kick off training season!

TNT provides comprehensive training programs tailored specifically for today’s team-sallytriathletes – with personalized training plans, sport-specific clinics and access to expert coaches to prepare for race day. At every event weekend, TNT teammates receive an unforgettable experience – featuring exclusive receptions, pre-race activities and more.
