Congrats to Jon Gagnon for being the Rulon Racing Fearless Athlete of the Month!
Jon jumped on board to Rulon Racing in 2017 BUT here is the cool story about it all. Jon and I connected via Instagram (of course) and we “bonded” over 9/11. He told his story about 9/11 as I did mine and we started following each other over the last couple of years. I saw he was a runner and he saw I was a triathlete. He reached out to me over the last few years and said, “You look so happy, when you do a triathlon. How?” I said, “I love this sport and how it makes me feel as a human being.”
You saw the lightbulb turn on. Jon did his VERY first triathlon in March 2017 and this was why he was nominated for the April Fearless Athlete of the Month!
His teammates nominated him for:
- For completing his first EVER triathlon! Dream-Believe-Achieve!
- Congrats on rocking your first race!
For doing his first triathlon EVER!!!
For rocking his first Tri!
So happy that Jon jumped on board and started to drink the “triathlon” Kool-Aid. He goal is to do a 70.3 IM Maine in August. I think he will be inspired if he heads up to IM Lake Placid to cheer other athletes on as well.
