Well, it seems I have once again found myself in a bit of a challenge. With Vineman 70.3 this Sunday I thought I would stick with tradition and once again challenge one of Team TriSports’ professional triathletes. Last year I “beat” Leanda Cave and this year I will be going head to head with Charisa Wernick.
Who is Charisa Wernick?
- Charisa is a microscope saleswoman by day and professional triathlete by night.
- In her rookie year she was 5th place at Ironman Wisconsin and had numerous top 10 finishes.
- She is one speedy thing once she gets her Zoots on and has run herself into the money on numerous occasions.
- Talent runs deep in Charisa’s family. Her father is a TriSports Champion who is still busy racing Ironman at age 60 and her husband is an accomplished hot dog eater.
The challenge: Based on both of our goal times we have set a 75 minute handicap. If I can finish in less than 75 minutes of Charisa’s time she is buying cupcakes from Sift Cupcake & Dessert Bar (seriously, check them out if you are racing Vineman or are ever in Santa Rosa, CA. BEST CUPCAKES EVER!). The best part of the challenge is this time you can place your own bets! Check out Charisa’s blog and post what you think our time gap will be. Winner gets a $50 gift certificate to TriSports.com!
