Adam HenningPresident

I started my triathlon journey back in 2011. I have completed dozens of sprint, Olympic and half-distance triathlons both locally and regionally. In 2018 I completed my first full distance triathlon at Ironman Boulder. This year my personal race plans will be local triathlons, a half marathon PR and half triathlon this fall.

As President for 2022, my focus will be on the Mudwater Triathlon, helping to make this race become the pinnacle race for our region. I will also help with rebuilding our membership base by helping to facilitate unique training opportunities and social events. We have a great group of board members this year and I am anxious to start working with them.

Thank you for the opportunity!

I am a Wichita native, I graduated with my degree in aerospace engineering from WSU in 2014. I currently work as an engineer at Textron Aviation doing propeller design.

I started getting into running in 2016. I trained for and competed in a couple of half marathons and wanted to add something to my training program so I started training with T3 Triathlon to learn how to swim. During this training they convinced me to sign up for my first half-ironman, Boulder 70.3 (2018). Since finishing my first half, I have competed in my first marathon, St Jude Memphis Marathon (2018), my second half-ironman, Wisconsin 70.3 (2019), and my first full ironman, Tempe, Arizona (2019)!

I have grown to love this sport and all the amazing people I have met via this sport. In addition to triathlon, I also volunteer for my sorority as a Financial Specialist and Philanthropy chair and love spending time with my dogs.

I witnessed my first tri in April, 2018 at Galveston to watch my son compete.  I found it to be very inspiring, the wide variety of folks competing.  Did my fist Sprint at El Dorado in June, 2018.  Found out I had a little competitive streak in me and I enjoyed the training, the race, the participants and the volunteers.

I graduated from WSU with a degree in Business, emphasis in accounting.  I worked in both public and private settings.  I have been with Murdock for 35 years now.  Planning to retire from the place!

I am looking forward to learning more about triathlons, the KRV club and the members.

I am a K-State graduate, with a degree in Kinesiology. During my time at KSU, I was a member of the track and field team and competed in the hammer and weight throw. After I graduated, I remember watching the Ironman World Championships on television and was so impressed at how amazing the athletes were.  I was inspired to sign up for my first triathlon, the El Dorado Sprint in 2013.  I did another sprint distance race in summer of 2014 and married my husband, that fall.  Fast-forward 5 years – I was a momma to three amazing kiddos–and looking to start my fitness journey again.  I decided to get back into working out to focus on losing weight and getting healthier.
