Win in Ironman Texas would be extra special for Daerr, who grew up here
Justin Daerr isn't sure how he became a professional triathlete.
Growing up in Houston, he didn't play organized sports at Lamar High School. No track and field, no cross country. And while he was at Texas A&M, he didn't know any other triathletes.
So even he would like to know how it happened. Then he would have an answer for all the people who ask him.
But he does know what keeps him going.
