Cindy Hutchings ELITE TEAM LIAISON
My triathlon career started in the mid-80’s with the Bud Light Series. I quickly discovered that my beer hydration method did not work after ending up in the medical tent. So I kept the beer and dropped triathlons. After a 20 year layoff and 2 kids, I resumed my triathlon career with some prodding from a workout buddy. In the past 15 years, I have gone from a middle of the pack age grouper to part of Team USA for the past 7 years at the ITU Triathlon World Championships. Most of my energy is spent on the Olympic distance thanks to Team USA, but my preferred distance is the HIM. This year I am beginning my season with Puerto Rico 70.3 in March and hoping to earn a spot for the 70.3 Worlds in Nice in September. I was a competitive swimmer growing up. As an adult, I have managed to learn to bike and run in spite of my swimming handicap. I decided to volunteer with the DC Tri Training programs as a way to share my knowledge, experiences, enthusiasm and to help others meet their goals.
