My name is: Tristan Pike
But I’m also known as: Just Tristan!
To sum myself up in a nutshell: I’m a triathlete whose training motto is basically just fake it ‘til you make it. Hate doing mile repeats, tell yourself you love them. Dying on the last rep, tell yourself you feel GREAT.
I’m originally from: All over NC
I’ve been in Winston-Salem: About 2 years
Became a TCTC member because: Community!
Been a “runner” since: In high school I needed to put a sport on my college applications so I ran “indoor track” which at my school just meant running around the hallways inside the school.
My motivation to run is: 50% to go fast and be competitive and 50% maintain my sanity
But when I’m not running, I enjoy: My obligatory other 2 sports! I swim with the WFU master’s group and ride out of Lewisville quite a bit.
