Will the real Beth O'Conner please stand up !

A long-time fan of super swimmer, triathlete and aquathlon champion Beth O’Conner Baker* (see her visage at other posts on our site, including this photo), I was surprised to meet her “stunt double” at “On Track” in Englewood, New Jersey. Yet, when I visited this Englewood New Jersey running and fitness store, I thought I had bumped into Beth’s twin as evidenced from the photo I took with my iPhone. This is Beth O’Connor of On Track, located at 1 Engle Street, Englewood, NJ 07631 (201) 541-1600 is a wonderful shop staffed by friendly knowledgeable salespeople who “walk the walk AND talk the talk.” If you are in Bergen County for a race, stop by and visit”On Track.” When this New Jersey injury & disability lawyer is in the Garden State for a case, race or family visit, he stops by.

*According to American University, where Beth is an Assistant Coach, Baker was a 10-time All-American swimmer at the University of Virginia. She later went on to earn a master’s degree in exercise physiology, also from UVA. Since then, she has competed at the highest level of age-group triathlon and masters swimming. When I competed in the USAT Aquathon National Championships, she was a gold medalist (and swam right over me during the race !). She has won the Reston Triathlon and broke over 30 world and national masters swimming records. AU reports two years ago Beth: was ranked first in the world in over 15 events, was named one of 12 USMS Masters Swimmers of the Year, and garnered a spot in Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd” column. Additionally, Baker has been elected to UVA’s Swimming Hall of Fame.
