Rockstar Triathlete: Jesse Jimenez
Coach’s Notes: To take up the sport of triathlon at age 63 is pretty gutsy and that is a great way to describe Jesse! In one year, he has become the triathlete he set out to become. He finished his first 70.3, just a few weeks ago, feeling amazing and signed up for a full Ironman in 2021. He also PR’d his International distance triathlon. An inspiration to our whole team to be an example of what’s possible at any age! Way to go Jesse, Ironman is calling!!!
