Get to know our BATC board members! We asked each board member a few questions about themselves and here’s what they had to say.
Our first spotlight is on Joe O’Bruba. Joe has been a long time member and board member. This year he is serving as Secretary.
Why did you become involved in triathlons?
I wanted to see if I could do an IRONMAN. Turns out I can, just very slowly…
What’s the best part about being involved in BATC?
The people. Besides meeting my wife here, BATC is my favorite part of being in Baltimore. (editorial note: Sadly, Joe is leaving us for Michigan)
What are you most looking forward to this season?
Recovering from last season. I did five triathlons, including Savageman, last year so I plan on just doing a couple of shorter races this year.
Hobbies or interests:
Most recently golf. It’s like learning to swim but now I’m drowning on well-manicured grass.
