The Dirty Bird Team

Ryan is an avid triathlete and runner. He has competed in many long distance events across the country and continues logging his swim, bike, and run miles. Over the years, he has served as a race organizer, development director, and cross country and track coach. His passion for competition and endurance sports is evident, whether he is racing or putting on events for others to enjoy.

Ani is somewhat new to world of endurance sports. After starting off with 5k road races, she has moved towards multi-sport and trail running events. She is a dedicated health educator in East Tennessee and continues to teach adolescents the importance of maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

Eric used to be an athlete. Now he’s not. He likes the idea of being an athlete…of any kind. He’s not. He likes being around athletes, because it makes him feel more like an athlete. When Eric is not playing on the trails, he can be found at the many community and school functions that he is also involved with.
