Meet a couple members of the USA Triathlon Northeast Region and connect with fellow Northeast Region members and stay up to date with region news by following the Northeast Region Facebook page.
Marcos Esquivel 55-59 age group
Marcos grew up doing sports — football, soccer, and running, but he hit a standstill with being active for about 15 years due to a demanding job in New York City. In 2012, he was given a challenge — to complete a sprint triathlon. As time went on, his race schedule grew and his love for the sport was born! Marcos was honored to compete at USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships this year for the first time. He said it was the greatest accomplishment of his triathlon career!
James Strol 35-39 age group
James, from Connecticut, has been doing triathlon since 2015, when he joined the Chelsea Piers CT Tri Club in Stamford, Connecticut. With his outgoing nature and positive attitude, James quickly became a team motivator and leader. In just three years, James has finished several sprints and Olympic distance races, five half-IRONMAN distances and two full IRONMAN distances. The best part? James takes the most pride in helping others train, in hopes of getting them hooked on triathlon as much as he is.
