I am Jeff Allen, a 24 year old from State Center, Iowa. I am a pharmacy student at Drake University. I play for the Drake University Ultimate Frisbee team as a way to stay active. (DUC)
This will be my 2nd turn at the Hy-Vee Triathlon. I joined the triathlon because my pharmacy manager ran them and it is a friendly competition between us. I was a 3 season athlete throughout high school and played for both Iowa State and Drake’s club frisbee teams.
The running event is my best in the triathlon sport. The hardest time to train for me is during the school year; hard to find time for school/social life/training. Before a race I like to eat at Spaghetti Works and have a few brews. Being a Hy-Vee employee, I am proud of our corporation and how they can put such an event together each year.
