October 2013 Athlete of the Month
Barry Beck, the youngest of 3 boys, grew up in a very athletic family from Cincinnati, Ohio. He actively participated in just about every sport known to man. His main focus as a youth was on swimming, where he swam year round and traveled the country on weekends to compete. After graduating from Ohio State University he immediately relocated to Colorado to pursue his outdoor passions of skiing and snowboarding. Barry competed in dozens of marathons and countless half marathons before he turned his attention to triathlons. His proudest athletic accomplishments are competing for 13 straight years in the 5430 Boulder Tri Series, & 23 years in The Bolder Boulder 10k. This weekend warrior loves to race and raise money and awareness for local and national organizations such as the Livestrong Foundation, the American Lung Association and the ALS Association. Barry isn’t slowing down any time soon in his pursuits and passions, and loves to train and live a healthy lifestyle while enjoying his beautiful Colorado surroundings!
