Welcome to Dan Becker's Triathlon Site, a personal web page describing the races, road trips, and training of Dan Becker and the goofy world of triathlons. Triathlons are my favorite hobby. I love to train, and I love to race. I've done eight ironman distance races, and my goal is to do a double ironman or a 100 mile ultra run. I also would love to run a marathon in all 50 states. I have been a triathlete since 1984, and I live and work in Austin, Texas, with many of my races going to the nearby towns and cities. My arch-nemeses are Phil and Adam, my racing rivals.
If you are veteran triathlete, I hope you will laugh at the stories and empathize with the struggles and hardships of the sport. If you are new to triathlons, I hope you can learn a thing or two about the sport and will be interested enough to give it a try. It's fun to do multi-sport events, and the people you meet and the tales you create are the most valuable benefit of this sport.
