This year we’re celebrating ten years of Chasing The Finish Line with the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon. We caught up with some of our former triathletes to see what they’ve been up to since appearing on the show.
Jim Johnson appeared on the show in in 2008. Since then he’s participated in several Olympic triathlons and a couple of half IRONMAN triathlons. He has recently decided to retire from triathlons, “at least temporarily.”
Melanie Silva appeared on Chasing The Finish Line in 2014. She also participated in the Waterfront the following year, and has since moved on to more diverse outdoor activities.
Ralston Maloney was our triathlete on last year’s show. While training for this year’s triathlon, Ralston had a bike accident that will unfortunately keep him from participating in the Waterfront.
We’re happy to introduce our new triathlete for this season of Chasing The Finish Line, Cathy Gracey. Cathy began running marathons just after her 60th birthday, and has since participated in IRONMAN triathlons and marathons all over the world. She most recently ran in this year’s London Marathon in England. This year will be her first year in the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon, although she has volunteered at the event for several years.
