cmr2The father and son team of Dick and Rick Hoyt have completed over 1,100 races together including 70 marathons, 247 triathlons and six Iron distance triathlons since their first five mile run back in 1977. The real story of Team Hoyt, however, goes far beyond the races they have completed. It’s all about the attitudes they have changed and the lives they have impacted for the better.

Mel Hauschildt

cmr2Mel Hauschildt just won her second Ironman 70.3 World Championship. For a former steeplechaser – her steeple stories were hilarious! – who ended up taking a gold at the 2000 Goodwill Games and a silver at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, this triathlete-come-lately certainly is an unbelievable talent. She started cycling to help recover from one of her 13 running-induced stress fractures. Next up was swim training, and in 2011 she won her first Ironman 70.3 World Championship title.

cmr2Terenzo Bozzone took second place at the 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championship behind Germany’s Sebastian Kienle. For someone who is only 28 years old, the man they call T has already had an amazing career with a total of five world championships under his belt. For some great athletes, a second place might be considered a disappointment. For T, after coming back from Achilles tendon surgery, second place was pretty damn sweet.

Luc Van Lierde

cmr2Luc Van Lierde is one of my all-time favorite athletes. Who else runs his first marathon ever during the 1996 Ironman World Championship, goes 2:41:48 and not only wins the Ironman in his first ever attempt at it, but sets a course record (8:04:08) that would stand for the next 15 years.
