Sr. Engineer Manager, 1-3 Years Racing Triathlon
"In the past two years, I transformed myself from 220 lbs. to 175 lbs. When I first I tried to run, I was very slow. I trained and went on a diet, though none of my friends believed in what I wanted to do. Now, I run an hour faster in the half marathon than I did two years ago, and have been able to do complete a 70.3. I want to tell people how powerful it is to train, to see your progress, and to analyze your data - I'm a firm believer of numerical data. Once you're hooked, it's too late!”
Alexandre Desemery has been running for three years, but has been serious about it since 2011 when he started training in the three sports and racing in several triathlons. He has been working with a coach since last year and is now preparing for Ironman Lake Placid 2012 with the help of professional athlete and coach Nigel Gray from NRG PT. Alexandre has already shaved an hour off of his half marathon time since he started running, and is now looking for further improvements while always keeping the “fun factor” of sport in mind.
