Logan Jackson: Triathlon Competitor
By: Emily Perdue
When asked what convinced Jackson to compete in a triathlon, he smiled and said, “I was good at swimming and running so I decided to give it a shot!” To stay motivated while running, Jackson repeatedly tells himself how far he has come. “I think about how I’m not far from the finish line,” he states.
Jackson is currently working hard to improve his triathlon time, “I train and practice transitions.” He also works towards, “eating better and getting more sleep.” Jackson rides his bike to school often, which helps him train for the cycling portion of the triathlon.
Jackson has traveled around the world, including locations such as Hawaii. Jackson loves traveling the world with his friends and family, which is one of the many reasons why he loves competing. Jackson is ecstatic to participate in more triathlons and hopes to excel in the future!
