Chris Jackson (chris913) Program Leader
Chris joined the DC Tri Club in 2010, the year of his first triathlon. The year before, woefully out of shape, he decided to train for a century ride and found that he really enjoyed cycling. He needed a new goal and decided to try
His long-term goal is to qualify for Kona by age 50 (5 years) and, aside from needing to get significantly faster in the swim, bike, and run, dial in his nutrition strategy and improve his mental focus, he is basically there (good to have a stretch goal!). Chris really enjoys the challenge of racing and improving and he has met a lot of great people in the sport. He especially enjoys helping those newer to triathlon and since he has made every mistake possible, his hope is to help newer long course triathletes get up the learning curve faster.

Patrick Pannett (ppannett) Program Co-Leader / Communications
A latecomer to the world of triathlon and running. Starting in 2010 with the National Half Marathon, he joined DC Tri that year and did his first triathlon - the SavageMan HIM at Deep Creek Lake.
From there he went on to ChesapeakeMan IM in 2011, thanks to the first DC Tri IM program, the hills of St. George, Utah for his second Ironman, and Lake Placid for 2013. In 2014, he revisited the Chesapeake for IM Maryland, PRing once again. He ran Boston in '13 and '14, qualifying for 2015, but is now taking a year off to focus on shorter races and other events like the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim. He's excited to share my experiences, and looks forward to racing with everyone in 2015.
Karen Willard (kmwpro) Program Co-Leader / Events
Karen joined the DC Tri Club for its the New Triathlete Program in 2007 after doing her first mini race the summer before on a borrowed bike. After a somewhat disasterous start to her triathlon career at the New Jersey State Triathlon that summer, she had a great second race that year at Columbia's Iron Girl. 4 bikes, 2 garmins, and countless bottles of GU Rocktane later, she can't imagine a life without swim, bike, run, and post workout snacks with sweaty friends.
