I am David Djordjevic, a 30 year old from Des Moines, IA. I attended both Iowa State University and Drake University. During my free time I enjoy video games, working out, and doing anything competitive.
I completed my first triathlon in 2001 but did not complete another until 2011. This will be my 2nd Hy-Vee Triathlon. Originally I had just graduated high school and wanted to say that I had done a triathlon. In 2011, when I started back up, I started to use the sport as tool to get in better shape and to share more activities with my wife.
My best event is the running portion. My most memorable finish was in the St. Louis Marathon, finishing my goal that my wife and I set out to achieve and it felt amazing. The ideal time to train for me is in the spring and fall seasons. At last year’s Hy-Vee Triathlon I enjoyed how big the event was, the organization, and the gear were quality for races in the area. I’m hoping to go out to this year’s Hy-Vee Tri and have a great race while enjoying competing against some of the best athletes.
