     Name & Contact  About  
    President  Randy Schwemmin  I have been racing since long, long ago... 2006, everything from sprints to Ironmans. I have lots of stories to tell, but I'm not in any danger of winning anything. Happy to be part of the awesome triathlete community in Ann Arbor! 
    Vice President Kimberly Vaughn I was new to triathlon as of 2016. I tried a mini-sprint to "just do one" but like so many here, I really enjoyed it so I didn't stop at just one. I'm not very fast and am still building my skills, but I've got heart and spirit galore. I'm excited to be a member of the club to meet new people and to learn from those with more experience. 
    Treasurer  PJ Wascher Marathons, Ultras and Triathlons. Well trained at torturing myself over long periods of time. 
    Secretary  Erin Pons My first exposure to triathlon was as a supporter and photographer for my husband's first 70.3 Ironman in Racine in 2011. I was amazed by the number of individuals who came out to cheer on their friends and family, and after seeing the participants cross the finish line, I knew that I had to take on the challenge myself. The next summer, my husband and I did that same race together. It was the most surreal, challenging, and rewarding experience of my "training" life so far. It's a great way to stay in shape, have fun with friends, and make awesome memories.
