Farris Lyons (Alumni)

Growing up, Farris was always the child with a rocket strapped to his back. Farris just wants to go fast!! Being raised in Florida and California, he naturally found a passion for surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and various other extreme activities. Farris and his friends were always competing and pushing each other to go bigger! Farris now resides in Atlanta, Georgia where his passions have changed a bit due to his geographic location, but he still stays true to his instincts of "going fast"! Today, you'll find him pushing the speed limit in running races and triathlons. Farris has found a home within Team in Training where he mentors beginner through advanced athletes to work hard and reap the results. One of Farris's favorite things about the sport of running and triathlon is traveling to fun and beautiful destinations to compete in races. One of his favorite races to date was the Nations triathlon that took place on September 11th, 2011 in Washington, DC. It will always be remembered as an emotional day where he ran through the streets of the nation's capitol, surrounded by the historic sites and a relentless crowd cheering on the sidelines.
