Ryan Hutemacher is sold on Leon and his triathlon. Hutemacher, who does a monthly television show on WGN on healthy eating, will be running in Leon's Triathlon next month. Hutemacher crossed paths with Leon Wolek, the maniac behind the triathlon when he was training with his brother, Scott, for the Chicago Triathlon. Ryan fell for Leon's spirited pitch for his race, which will be held at Wolf Lake on June 6 and he committed immediately. Ryan started getting in shape about 18 months ago and he ran his first triathlon last year. He's 50 pounds lighter and a whole lot healthier now. Hutemacher, who owns a catering company that specializes in healthy food, is going to fix dinner for Leon and his family before the race. "We jived together," Hutemacher said. "I was really intrigued by his approach to promoting the race."
