Karen McKeachie is a 15-time National Age Group Champion and a six-time World Champion in triathlon. Growing up in a small town in Michigan, there really weren’t many opportunities for girls to play sports. Karen has more than made up for lost time. When she got into running she set a personal best of 2:48 for the marathon. In her first attempt at the Ironman Triathlon World Championship in 1984 she finished eighth, and at the age of 58 she was the overall champion -for men and women – of a triathlon in Michigan. In both 2013 and 2014 she won the 60-64 National Championship for the Olympic distance race on Saturday and for the Sprint Distance on Sunday. Karen also co-founded Triathlon Today Magazine. On April 18th Karen McKeachie will be inducted into the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame.
