Member Spotlight – Joe O’Bruba

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.

Here’s a picture of Joe finishing his first race!

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.
