← ALL ATHLETES

TODD BURNS

Date of Birth/Location: November 13th. Born in Toms River, NJ & grew up in Sandy Hook, CT
Years Racing: I’ve been doing sports most of my life; 6th season doing triathlons
Strengths on the course: Preferably something not related to bike dismounts
Goals for 2019: First season racing pro (and I’m getting old! lol) so my goal is to simply enjoy the process and have fun
Nickname: In high school it was “Burnsie”
Height: 5’7” (According to Snapple’s “Real Facts,” the same height as Napoleon Bonaparte)
Family Status: Married to an amazing wife, Alice, with sons Gavin (3) and Grady (2)
Favorite Race Moment: Winning Ironman Maryland 2018; Winning the Columbia Triathlon 3 weeks after my son was born; Meeting my closest triathlon friend (who now lives in Australia) at the Luray Triathlon in 2013
Favorite thing when not swimming, biking, or running: Playing with my wife and sons
Favorite Food: Coffee (is that a food?)
Random Training Strategy: I do one to three sauna sessions per week; even in the offseason. It gives me time to meditate and doubles as heat training.
