Reaching New Peaks: Andy Weinberg
by Carrie Adams
Growing up in Peoria, IL, Andy Weinberg, 41, always loved the water. He swam competitively in high school and college, and when he did his first triathlon in high school, he fell in love. At the time there weren’t many people doing them, and after college Andy spent a couple years really hitting the triathlon circuit. He burnt out with swimming after a few years and decided to focus on running instead. Admittedly never “super-fast,” he trained consistently and did 11 marathons in one year alone.
