Charles Elder's Team Zero Athlete Page
Last year, for the first time, I competed in the Chattanooga IronMan 70.3 on a fundrainsing team. I have been on teams before, but this one was different. With teammaes from across the country, we trained individually but yet were still connected. Through Team Zero we built an on-line community to share our training, our strategies, nutritional info, struggles, etc. When we sat down together as a team face-to-face for the first time 2 days before the race it felt like we were old friends. We cheered each other on throughout the day. Although we lacked proximity, we truly were a team. Teams stick togehter. Teams support one another. Teams show up for each other. Which is why I am choosing to compete and fundraise with Team Zero again. I have a teammate who I need to show up for. An amazing man, father, triathlete and service member on our team did not get to finish the event last year. He suffered a medical emergency during the swim and passed away. He is my motivation and reason for completing Chattanooga this year with Team Zero. I am finishing the race for him....because that's what teammates do.
