DC Triathlon Club

Daniel Smith

December, 2020

Daniel has been racing triathlon for 3 wonderful years; his first race was the culmination of DC Tri’s 2018 New Triathlete Program: Rev3 Williamsburg. Before competing in triathlons, he played soccer competitively through college, ran cross country in high school, biked around the neighborhood with friends in middle school, and learned how to not drown in elementary school. Over these past few years, has has learned how to actually swim from our amazing and infinitely patient Masters swim program coaches, run many miles along the Potomac, and enjoyed the painful wonders of threshold efforts with the OSP team.
