Interview with John Kenny
Q: One or two sentences about you. Who are you? What do you do for a living? Where do you live?
I am a pro triathlete in addition to being a coach and a race director. I currently live in Conshohocken, PA, just outside of Philadelphia.
Q: What keeps you inspired to continue to train for and participate in triathlons?
What keeps me continuing to train is just my drive to succeed and win races. Never being content with your results and always striving for more.
Q: Do you think that your lifestyle has changed since you did your first triathlon?
I’ve always lived the triathlete’s lifestyle, even before I competed in my first triathlon at the age of 10.
Q: What are your goals for the Luray Triathlon?
Like any other race, my goal is to go out and win. I don’t like to settle for 2nd place.
Q: What advice would you give any aspiring triathletes?
Triathlon is a great lifestyle. Be sure to prepare yourself to complete the distance. Once you’ve completed your first race, your goal should be to compete for time. Work hard to achieve those goals.
Q: What’s next for you after Luray Triathlon?
The weekend after Luray, I am directing a race of my own – the UMSTC AQUATHLON in King of Prussia, PA.
