Radio Show

After the San Diego World Triathlon last weekend, Bob Babbitt and Paul Huddle from Competitor Radio wanted some high profile guests for their Sunday night radio show. Since all of the big names were booked, they ended up with Tommy Zaferes and me.  We had a blast discussing everything from the race to our different backgrounds as competitive swimmers. Here’s …

San Diego World Triathlon

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

Life is full of ironies.  I started my 2013 race season just over a month ago, and already I’ve traveled over 10,000 miles to and from competitions.  If that sounds like a lot to you, let me take this moment to remind you the moon is 238,900 miles from Earth–and you can see that on most clear nights.  Even though …

Thank YOU

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

Thank you to all who donated last week.  Team Philly Pro Tri’s fundraiser for the Blazeman Foundation was not as successful as we had hoped in terms of dollars raised, but that does not mean it was a failure.  Everyday, the Blazeman Foundation works to find a cure for ALS by doing two things:  raising awareness and raising funds.  While …

A quote…

Here’s a quote which I first saw on the pool deck at Germantown Academy. It doesn’t directly apply to the fundraising push I’m making this week, but it definitely makes you think. This quote reminds me to align my passions with an action and my actions with a purpose. “Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling …

Pedro Arrupe, leader of the Society of Jesus for nearly 20 years.  In the quote below, Fr. Arrupe …
