My name is Jake Schild. I am currently a PhD candidate in Economics at Indiana University. Being active and involved in sports has been a constant feature throughout my life. While in undergrad I was a member of the Wabash Swimming and Diving Team. However, I knew that would end with my graduation, so I began looking for activities I could continue after college. Then my mom introduced me to triathlons. I did my first spring triathlon in July 2012 and have been hooked ever since.
One of my defining characteristics is the insatiable need to push myself. I am always looking for new challenges whether it be academically, spiritually, or physically. The Ironman organization has given me the opportunity to push myself beyond what I thought was possible. Last year I completed my first Ironman 70.3 (Muncie), and will be competing in my first Ironman (Louisville) this October. I am looking forward to all the challenges that will be faced along this journey.
