David Byrd

Club Treasurer

David joined the club 5 years ago when he was trying to become a better marathoner and he got hooked. He competed in his first triathlon the following year.

David joined the board 2 years ago as a means to give back to a group that accepted him with open arms. Since then, he has done a dozen sprint triathlons, duathlons, 1/2 marathons and completed his first 1/2 IRONMAN in 2017 (IRONMAN NC 70.3). When not working or training, David loves spending time with his wife Michelle and 3 fur babies Dakota, Rummer and Oakley.

 

Keith Shackleford

Keith Shackleford

Club Secretary

Keith’s story begins in 1984 when he made the cross-country team.  From that point forward, he has remained forever in a quest to be an Olympic athlete.  Finally, realizing that the track & field dream was not to be, he embarked on a career in law.  He purchased his first bicycle, a hybrid, so he could ride to and from law school, often toting his running gear along with his law books. Running became more about being in shape to catch ambulances after law school.

Then in 2003, a fellow Demon Deacon told him about the Team in Training program.  Like so many triathletes, he learned that he did not know how to swim, and his mountain bike was not very efficient for long rides.  His first “A” race was Kings Trail Triathlon in Maui, Hawaii. During his first Triathlon career, he was often at the bottom of his age group much like his track & field career.  Soon, the ambulance chaser lost interest.

Then in 2012, needing a way to reduce stress, he returned to the sport. By this time, the triathlon community had exploded.  Scheduled open water swims and group rides were abundant.  Then one day, IRONMAN Raleigh 70.3 was coming, and all of the cool kids were doing it.  So why not.  Since that first DNF in Raleigh, he has completed 5 half iron distances and IRONMAN Maryland.  He has been a member of the club for four years.
