Motivational speaker and tri-athlete Tony Schiller is the featured speaker Thursday at a Sales and Marketing Executives of Fargo-Moorhead Inc. luncheon at the Holiday Inn of Fargo.

Schiller, 45, of Chanhassen, Minn., finished 21st in his age group Saturday at the 2003 Ironman World Championship in Honolulu. His time for event, composed of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bicycling race and 26.2-mile marathon run, was 10 hours, 38 minutes.

Schiller has raced hundreds of times in triathlons all over the world, winning 78, including three this summer.

In his presentations for business groups, Schiller explains that racing in an event like the Ironman is a lesson in how to use the power of the mind and heart in facing adversity.

The luncheon is at noon. Monthly SME meetings are open to nonmembers. For information, contact Julie Kottsick at (701) 277-7312.
