If we had to single out one TPB member as our “sub-elite athlete”, it would likely be Chris “Super Hatdog” Iblan. A true running thoroughbred and one of the younger members of the team, he’s accomplished so many podium finishes and unbeatable times that we consider him a true sensation and force to be reckoned with.
Chris excels in every distance he competes in, from running the 5K in under 18 minutes, to completing the 102-kilometer BDM ultramarathon. But he doesn’t only walk the walk (or rather run the run), he also talks the talk. He is a veritable fountain of information and advice when it comes to training tips, injury prevention, technique drills and general words of motivation.
Look for Chris at your next local race; you’ll either see him tearing up the pavement with cheetah-like strides or accepting an award on the podium with a big smile!
