Maddy Pesch is a professional triathlete from the USA specializing in the half ironman distance. Her most recent results include a 4th place finish at Challenge Half Cancun qualifying for the 2019 Challenge Championship in Slovakia. Maddy made her pro debut in 2018 after winning the 24 and under National USA Age Group Olympic Distance Championships and taking the silver medal at the 20-24 ITU Age Group Standard World Championships in 2017. In her rookie season, she placed 6th at St. Anthony’s Triathlon in her first pro race and competed in the half ironman distance for the first time, placing in the top 15 at all of her races. Now in 2019, Maddy has fully made the transition from short course amateur to long course professional with as many as ten half ironmans planned for this year!
Maddy’s Philosophy “I am passionate about triathlon because for every athlete there is always a new challenge to pursue and a way to grow! I love working hard every day to stretch my comfort zones and find the next level of performance. Triathlon has ignited within me a sense of adventure that I never knew I had! I want to give back in this sport by sharing the energy I get from it with others!”
On F2C “Before F2C I would run around between training, coaching, and family commitments with a box of cereal in my hand to get enough calories! I wasn’t consistent in my fueling, and I didn’t have a sense of how to fuel for the half ironman distance. F2C now has my back in both training and racing to make sure I’m feeling 100% for the toughest efforts, and I am recovering and getting the nutrients I need in between my training and racing. My nutrition plan is now one of my greatest weapons to keep me at my best!”
