What was your first triathlon?
My first triathlon was a sprint in Virginia. The swim was in an indoor pool because I have serious OWS fear that I’ve mostly learned how to control. I used a mountain bike with slicks because I wanted to wait until after the race to gauge my interest before dropping serious dough on a time trial bike.

How did you get involved in triathlon?
I got involved in triathlon after seeing my husband race. I liked the idea of doing a new hobby with him and staying healthy at the same time.

Any memorable races or experience?
Tri has brought me so many memorable experiences, people and to new places. The tri community has enriched my life!
