Training Diaries from 2008
Why I tri? You could say my triathlon endeavors began where my ballet career ended: at age eight, in a puddle on the floor. Actually, I can’t remember if I was eight, six, or ten even – all I remember is that I was too old to be peeing my pants. “Hold it until the end of the class,” my ballet teacher had said.
