Tri-athlete competes to raise support for The Salvation Army

Submitted by on September 20, 2010 – One Comment

Tri-athlete Shannon Titzel and her familyImagine this; a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. Now, imagine doing all three of those activities one after the other on the same day! Yes, all my major muscle groups hurt just thinking about it too.

It’s called an ultra triathalon and Alaska native Shannon Titzel has been training for one these last several months. Come November Shannon will travel to Arizona to compete in the 2010 Arizona Ironman. She’s participating through the Janus Charity Challenge which equips elite athletes to raise money for their chosen charities at several Ironman races throughout the United States.

Shannon has picked The Salvation Army Corps Community Center in Anchorage as the recipient of the donations she’s raising and her goal is $15,000. Once it’s built, the center will host after-school programs, literacy classes, arts and music education, sports and recreation facilities, a worship community and so more.
