Outside of the office you will find Peter swimming, biking, and running.
At age 50, he was inspired by watching Ironman Wisconsin the prior year and decided to enter the competition himself. He didn't even know a proper swim stroke! All of his training and dedication to the endurance sport has paid off and he is now a 3 time Ironman! He has also completed the Door County Half Ironman 4 times.
More info and photos to come.....
Peter is the Proud Papa to 10 grandchildren and is lucky enough to have 9 of them in the Madison area.
In 2015, Papa discovered a local kids triathlon competition in Oregon, WI and mentioned it to his granddaughters that were the right age to compete. He took the time to train the girls in swimming, biking, and running. It is still unclear who liked the sessions more, the kids or Pete! That year all 3 successfully completed the event, which inspired the next grandchildren who were eligible in age to sign up this year.
The training and competition has become a yearly tradition for Papa Pete and the grandkids. Team Papa's Pride has had Triathlon Finishers every year since!
