In and Out Express Care Racing Team

Get to know In and Out Express Care’s sponsored athletes.

We enourage our local Hampton Roads community to stand behind and support these amazing athletes!

 

In our segment on The Hampton Roads Show, learn about how In and Out Express Care focuses on the importance of “active recovery” for those trying to stick to a training schedule. Featuring one of our athletes, Carolyn Menker!

Carolyn Menker

Our first female sponsored triathlete is Carolyn Menker from Williamsburg, VA. She is a super talented, former D1 collegiate swimmer and top age group triathlete!

Carolyn started doing triathlons 4 years ago. A former teammate urged her to give one a try. “I always protested that I couldn’t possibly do one because I didn’t have the time to train like I used to. I had to completely reframe the way I thought about racing and training as an adult and working mother.”

She has found a way to fit family, work and training into her busy schedule. Her son is getting in on the fun and starting to compete too. When triathlons are a family affair, they are so much fun!

Carolyn is crazy humble but she’s smoking fast and dominates the local triathlon scene. I think that she’s just getting started. With a few more years of tri training under her belt, she will be unstoppable. We’re thrilled to have her on our team! Carolyn is proof that you can have it all.

Sika Henry

Sika Henry is a triathlete, two-time marathon winner, and freelance writer. She is also a former collegiate high jumper and graduated from Tufts University with a degree in Economics.

She lives in Newport News, VA, where she is an Analyst for Ferguson Enterprises. Sika focuses on the Ironman 70.3 distance and is passionate about increasing diversity within the sport of triathlon (African Americans make up only 0.5% of the sport).

Sika is making a bid to become the fist African American woman to earn a professional rank in the sport of triathlon. She is talented, driven and ridiculously fast! We think she has exactly what it takes to dominate the sport. We know all of Hampton Roads will join us as we cheer her on to victory. Go Sika!

Adam Otstot

Adam Otstot grew up in Richmond, VA. He has a deep sports background which includes running at William and Mary college in Williamsburg.

A steeplechase champion, he eventually fell in love with the sport of triathlon. This hard working and driven athlete has climbed the ranks, becoming one of the best triathletes the USA has to offer. In our opinion, he holds a spot besides the legendary US triathletes, Ken Glah and Tim Deboom. He placed 3rd overall at the IM Chattanooga 70.3 triathlon and 4th overall at the full distance IM Chattanooga.

Adam placed 38th overall at the Kona Ironman Triathlon World Championships and has earned his place on top of the leader boards. We are super excited to announce that he is the newest member of the In and Out Express Care Elite Racing Team for 2019.

Help us cheer on this amazing athlete as he continues his domination in the USA Ironman triathlon circuit! Let’s go Adam!

Robert Cass

Robert Cass is a new member of our 2020 racing team. He is the founder of LocalTrVibe. He is also an incredible athlete and gives selflessly to Ainsley’s Angels.

Robert competes in triathlons with the Angels, pulling and pushing them with him, inspired and driven by the power of love. Robert excels by using his endurance and Iron Will to help others by raising money with his endurance events. Please help us welcome him to the team!

Deborah Shearer

Deborah Shearer is a new member of our racing team. This vegan triathlete has a very impressive race resume including 4th in her age group at the AG National Championships.

Deborah was also a 2019 ITU World Qualifier. Other pursuits include racing cyclocross with Rogue Velo Racing as a cat 3 and road racing with East Coast Elite as a cat 4. She also competes NCCAA DI on Regent University’s Cross Country and Track and Field Team. She qualified for Cross Country Nationals in 2018. Help us welcome her to the team!

Miriam Phalan

Miriam is an accomplished open water swimmer, triathlete and runner. Her biggest love affair has been with the water.

Miriam grew up in California and spent most days in the pool or at the ocean. Due to injury she decided to hang up her swim cap and put on some running shoes. This lead her to triathlons with top finishes in the Kinetic Sports Patriots Festival, 2nd place AG, Olympic Distance and the Outer Banks Triathlon Olympic distance in which she placed in the top 10. We are super excited to have Miriam on the team! Her excitement and love of the sport is contagious. Here’s to an amazing 2020! Let’s go Miriam!
