This is one of the most comprehensive guides to 16 North American Triathlons that should be on every Ironman’s bucket-list. Authors Greg and Monique McDonough are both accomplished triathlon competitors and parents who manage the Triathlon Parents group and website. Greg McDonough has been an avid believer in seeking and overcoming challenges his entire life. He’s currently tackling the never-ending challenge of parenting his two children with his wife, while simultaneously running a small business and training for his next IRONMAN race. Monique McDonough, a five-time ironman finisher, is all about balance. Juggling a career, two children, and training for each race means she relies on one thing: determination. Her triathlon interest began as a toast to her 30th birthday.
