Caty Broderick

I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle, I love my family and friends and I enjoy participating in events that are fun and challenging!  As a beginner triathlete I find excitement in a new sport; learning to swim in 2017 and finishing the Rookie Tri in 2018.

Airon Andrews

I am a runner and a member of the Beef Team and a run lead at Lifetime Fitness South Austin. I am a Program Analyst for my day job.

Hollie Richmer

I am an identical mirror image twin and have three other siblings and two loving parents who are still married.  As an athlete I absolutely love challenges and am a perfectionist wanting to do 100% or greater at everything I attempt!

PJ Thompson

As a second year triathlete who overcame a fear of water I completed my first triathlon at Rookie 2017. I’m encourage everyday by the community who through them I stay motivated to accomplish my goals. I want to be known as someone who encourages others to take on new goals, scary goals all while being there when they need me.

Nick Dauriac

I love to live life to the fullest. Taking on new challenges keeps me feeling young. I will try anything once, as long as it doesn’t kill me.

CC Rowe

CC is an accidentally triathlete, spending her first few years in the sport as a “swim, bike, walk”er. Over the last 15 years, she has gone from back of the pack to Team USA (2014, duathlon), 3 x Athena National Champion (2014, 2016, 2018), 2 x Ironman, and has completed over 50 triathlons. When she’s not swim/bike/running… wait… never mind. She’s always swim/bike/running.

Steve Alagna

I’m a single dad who moved to Austin about 5 years ago and work as an engineer for Dell. I started racing in 2014 and have completed many triathlons including 4 IM’s and 6 HIM’s as well as 2 standalone marathons. This year I’m getting more involved in bike racing.
