DC Triathlon Club

Matt Sarge

June, 2018

After deciding not to go straight to the NFL following a high school football career that included 3 made field goals and one rushing attempt (for 11yds), Matt took up triathlon in 2013 and joined the DC Tri Club Elite Team in 2017. He loves running on trails when it’s 42 degrees, finishing a hard bike ride on the indoor trainer by stepping out into cool air, and swimming on those rare days when the technique just clicks.

Least favorite section of the race: The part of the bike leg where you are starting to feel pretty tired but realize you still have a long way to go before you even get to the start of the run.
Biggest encouragement: A funny sign with a good pun
