Brian Wrona

Brian currently lives in San Diego and splits his time between his career as a recruiter for a software company and his side gig as the Vice President of the Triathlon Club of San Diego. After graduating from the University of California Davis with a degree in Communication, he moved back down to San Diego in 2005. After a few years of soul-searching (partying), he decided to get both his professional and physical life together.

Endurance sports were never something that came natural to Brian, indicating that typically items like running or swimming were more often times punishments than they were activities he looked forward to. Since his first half marathon in 2006 and first triathlon in 2008, Brian has immersed himself in the endurance sports lifestyle.  Since he started racing, Brian has completed 3 marathons, 2 Ironmans, and a whole slew of half ironmans, sprint triathlons, 5k’s, 10k’s, etc… and is hoping to complete his first Ultra Marathon soon. He has also dedicated a significant amount of his time with the Triathlon Club of San Diego to helping get beginners started in the sport.

Brian’s goal for his readers is to encourage them to try an endurance race, and help them with tips, tricks and advice to make sure that they attack it in a way that keeps them happy, healthy and excited.

Luke Wilkening

Luke is an aspiring writer, director, and film editor, born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, where he first began making short videos with his friends Dan Simon and Matt Johnson. The three of them are still working on small productions today. Sometime after that, and before he enrolled at Butler University, he discovered his love for beer.

At Butler he studied Digital Media Production along with Strategic Communications.  When he wasn’t working hard in the edit bays, he was exposed to a lot of Natural Light and Kamchatka Vodka. He soon realized there were more to good times than those two novelties, so he started buying different types of beer. When Luke is not attempting to write, he is oftentimes discovering new beers, and several nights those two hobbies turn into one compound activity.

Luke is currently working at New Chapter Entertainment as well as trying to make more putts on the golf course.  His favorite website is Pitchfork and his favorite Dromo writer is Chloe Cline–“What up Girl!”
