Cam Dye is having one heck of a year: five, count ’em five, first-place finishes thus far (Lifetime Minneapolis, REv3 Knoxville, Rev3 Wisconsin-Dells, Columbia, TriRock Philly), with several big races left on the docket. He’s currently fifth in the standings for the Life Time Tri Series – with a big race at Oceanside remaining – and this week, he’s prepping for the Hy-Vee 5150 US Championship, taking place Sept. 1 in Des Moines. In between finishing renovations on his new house, spending time with his wife Natalie and their son Liam, he lent his expert advice – and humor – to answer five questions posed by our Facebook fans earlier this month.

Experiencing this horrific event and feeling the earth tremor sitting two blocks away in a taxi, has given me a new perspective on running and life.
