After long work hours and previous injuries from playing basketball as a teenager took their toll on his health, Thorsten realized he needed to make some changes. He began with the goal to improve his health and eventually discovered triathlon. At the start, he was barely able to run a mile and had not ridden a bike nor swum a lap in 15 years. Now he does several races a year, frequently placing near the top of his 35-39 age group including 2nd at Capital of Dreams Intermediate distance, 4th at Mountain Lakes Endurance distance and 3rd at Alabama Coastal Intermediate distance.
With the Capital of Dreams Triathlon as one of his first race experiences, Thorsten credits Team Magic for being part of the “New Me!” “Every single Team Magic race I do is super fun. I absolutely love the passion, fire and excitement that Team Magic presents”, says Thorsten. He also now enjoys having his wife Courtney compete along side him at most events.
"Do what's right for you, tackle your own challenges and enjoy triathlon."
When not racing triathlons Thorsten is an active member of the Mountain Bike Search and Rescue Team at Lake Lurleen State Park in Tuscaloosa, AL. He continues to enjoy introducing new athletes, including many of his co-workers, to the sport through Team Magic events. He advises, “Do what's right for you, tackle your own challenges and enjoy triathlon. Most of us won't ever win an entire race or their age group and that's fine! We're in this sport for many different reasons.”
