My name is Matt Hughes and I am an Age Group Triathlete from Lexington, KY. I came to the sport later in life after being diagnosed with cancer five years ago. Since then I have completed 4 full and 3 half Ironmans, run the Boston Marathon, and continued to keep a positive attitude and mindset while working towards achieving all of my goals. I am hoping to qualify to race the Ironman World Championships in 2023 and want to keep encouraging myself and others to work towards being the best version of themselves possible. I also have as very successful Bourbon themed Podcast and Instagram page called "The Bourbon Life" that has received multiple awards and has over 52,000 Instagram followers.
