Chris is a pharmacist who owns two independent pharmacies, Goodlark Pharmacy in Dickson, TN and East Hickman Pharmacy in Lyles, TN.  He has been a member of the Eleonore Rocks triathlon team for 6 years and swims with Nashville Aquatic Club and does group rides with MOAB and R&B bike shops.  He feels that local races put on by local event managers are the best way to get new people to enjoy the sport. Chris likes supporting local races because it also gives back to the community and he says “nothing beats sleeping in your own bed the night before a race!”

Why Chris likes Team Magic events:  One word that makes me think of Team Magic Events is family. When I race Team Magic events, my triathlon friends I see on the course and my family cheer me on throughout the course. Nothing beats finisher photos with my little ones as I cross the finish line.

Motivational Quote:  Man in the Arena by Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

2017 Race Schedule:  Music City 10k, Music City Tri and others that are within a 4hr drive of Nashville (as FYI that would be Buster Britton Tri, Chattanooga Waterfront Tri, Mountain Lakes Tri, Cedars of Lebanon Tri and Mt. Juliet Half Marathon – looks like Chris might be racing a lot!)
