Talan Mertz (Urbandale, Iowa)
Talan is a wild and crazy eight year old from Urbandale, Iowa. Talan loves anything to do with triathlon – friends, running, swimming, biking – but most of all he loves the chocolate milk after practice. His mom and dad love the fact that he’s having a blast (and it doesn’t hurt that the practices wear him out).
