Adrian Santic is a triathlete living and training in beautiful Seattle.
He has a day-job in the high tech industry, and manages to find the time
for swimming biking and running.
That's not where he started though. Adrian has been a life-long mountain
biker. He switched to road cycling in 2006 and had a lot of fun riding
on wide open roads in Seattle's east suburbs. In early 2009 he started
looking for something more and discovered triathlons. The 2009 season has
been a solid learning experience for a first year triathlete. Adrian has
had some prior running experience, but he was brand new to competitive swimming
and had to learn fast.
Having gained experience in a few shorter triathlons in 2009, and having
perfected his swim stroke over the winter months, Adrian has competed in
more and longer triathlons in 2010 under the guide of his coach
A knee injury mid-season ended the racing for 2010. The 2011 season was
mostly a tentative return to competitive racing with an emphasis on shorter
races and avoiding re-injury.
The 2012 season was a smashing success with Ironman 70.3 events and a podium
finish at a Rev 3 race. Followed by more successes in year 2013 with another
podium finish and a qualification for US National Championships, as well
as year 2014 with a 1st place AG at an olympic distance race, and raced
ITU Chicago and more IM 70.3. The entire 2015 season was a loss due to a
bike crash early in the season.
Tentative goals for 2017 are competing in three Ironman 70.3, one full Ironman,
and a number of sprint and olympic distance triathlons.
