Jared's Story

Being a competitive triathlete, my main motivation is to achieve one simple goal: to win. However, when it comes to my faith, I know that to win means I must first lose. From what I've learned, following Christ means you must first lose yourself. We must get rid of all the worldly things we identify ourselves by and give Jesus control over our lives. This is something I struggled with for many years during my athletic career.

It took me a while to realize that no accomplishment in athletics or anything else would truly make me a "winner." Only by losing my faith in my accomplishments can I gain true faith in God. This is something I try to live by every day. I thank God for giving me this amazing ability to do what I love, but at the same time I want to glorify Him simply for being who He is and for what He did on the cross. As far as my future in triathlons goes, I only hope to keep getting faster and to continue striving to "win."



Athletic Background

Jared started in sports as an ice-hockey player at the age of five. His family was big into ice hockey at the time since his cousin, uncle, and dad had played for years. He played ice hockey all the way up to high school when he decided to quit at the age of 15. This was mostly because he had discovered running at the age of 13 while in Junior High School. After being cut from the track team tryouts in 7th grade, he started running on his own and never looked back. He ran all through junior high and high school and swam his junior and senior year of high school. His swim coach got him started in triathlons when he was 18, and he's been in love with the sport ever since.


Personal

Jared is the oldest son of Deene and Nancy Milam with a younger brother, Jeremy. He also has two half-sisters, Jill and Jenny. He is currently an employee of Boulder Running Company in Denver, Colorado and a coach for the TriDot Training System.
