Shane Farnham

High Prairie, Alberta

Hello Bonjour, tout le monde! :)
 
My name is Shane.  I'm 25 years old, originally from Quispamsis, NB.  I moved out to High Prairie, AB a little over two years ago.  I've been a runner since I was a little kid, and this year I'll be taking on a brand new challenge in triathlon.  I bought a bike last year to cross-train for the Edmonton Marathon when my poor legs just needed a little break.  This winter, the local pool put on a 105 KM Swim Challenge (Swim Across the Bay of Fundy), and I figured I'd give 'er a go!  I'm a sucker for a cardio challenge.  Of course, I started the swimming challenge only to maintain and supplement my running fitness, but my competitive runner's mentality apparently crosses over to biking and swimming as well: I LOVE beating my PB times!  Throw these three different forms of cardio together, and well,...the rest is history! 

 

I look forward to meeting some great new people, learning a lot more about triathlon, and hopefully getting some top finishes this racing season!  Come chat with me if you see my lanky awkward self out-and-about on race day.  Maybe we can chat to try calm each other's nerves or grab a post-race snack!
 
SF :)
