  • 2XU, which specializes in high-performance fitness apparel, recently welcomed long course triathlete Terry Kennedy to its portfolio of brand Ambassadors. A 2013 Ironman Melbourne finisher and 2013 Ironman World Championship qualifier, 34-year-old Kennedy's  "road to Kona" has been inspirational. In November 2011, seven months after his son Archie was born with a rare brain condition, his father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. In his father’s honor, a then overweight, unfit and unmotivated Kennedy decided to set himself a goal of running a marathon for the very first time. However, in May 2012, just five days prior to his marathon, Kennedy suffered from a brain stem stroke and heart attack; leaving him with no ability to walk, talk or see. Determined to achieve his original goal, Kennedy aggressively fought to restore his speech, vision and mobility, and within two months of finally leaving the hospital, he completed his marathon. He didn’t stop there. With plenty of cycling and swimming to further aid rehabilitation, Kennedy set a new goal — to complete an Ironman. Aggressive training followed, and in March 2013, Kennedy crossed the Ironman Melbourne finish line to achieve his mission.
  • Fitletic, which specializes in hydration belts and running belts, recently hired Jillian Lopez as the newest member of its public relations team.
