Paige WoodenJune, 2018
Date of Birth/Location: October 2, Kailua HI
Years Racing: 6
Athletic Background: Pretty close to none. I tried out for the swim team in high school and almost got cut. Also did 1 year of cross country and track but was one of the slowest on the team. Then a “casual jogger” and gym goer until I decided to start doing tris.
Strengths on the course: Running; not letting things get to my head.
Goals for 2018: Train for my 1st IronMan and pull off a respectable time.
Favorite places to train: runs through Rock Creek, rides in Shenandoahs, Frederick, and Deep Creek, especially on a perfect weather day.
Favorite thing when not swimming, biking, or running: Laughing with friends.
Favorite Food: Roasted butternut squash—“Nature’s Candy.” But I also really like oatmeal. Is wine a food?
Fun Fact: When I was 2, I escaped from my crib at 5 am to follow the garbage man down the street. He had to go door to door asking who I belonged to. I was always the head-strong adventurous type.
Fav Race Distance: I like racing olympics but I like training for longer distances.
Fav Race: Hometown race, Nation’s
