Ryan Barbieri:

Ryan was introduced to the sport of triathlon several years ago and participated in his first event in 2013. Looking for a new challenge and an avenue to bring more physical activity to his life, he introduced all three disciplines (swimming, biking and running) into his workout routine. What started as a mindless challenge has developed into a lifestyle that compliments his “real job” as an insurance executive.
