How did you get into triathlon?
My boyfriend at the time was very involved in the sport and when he told me that F2T was starting a rookie program, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try it out and see what motivated him to get up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday to go bike 75 miles. After my first race, I was hooked! We broke up shortly thereafter...I'm pretty sure he was worried I'd start beating him - :) LOL!!
How long have you been doing triathlon?
Since March 2007
Trail Runs (followed by post-run "recovery" coffee from QT)
Do you have training partners?
My fellow muppet, Aus, and anyone who comes to the F2T rides and swims
2012 Route 66 Olympic Distance Triathlon "Best of the US Qualifier" - solid race, PR'd and placed 2nd but more importantly shared a lot of laughs throughout the weekend with my travel partner, Aus.
None - if I'm having fun, it can't be that bad!
Why you do triathlons?
I enjoy the friendly competition and the personal challenge and most importantly, I can pretty much eat whatever I want.
What's next for you?
Most embarrassing moment doing sports?
In college, I was at the gym running on the treadmill wearing a sports bra and a pair of shorts. I kept wondering why everyone that walked past was staring at me. After my run, I went over to stretch by the mirror and that's when I discovered that my excessive sweating had made my sports bra see-through

Between 5:30a-7:30 M-F and between 6a-8a on Saturday and Sunday
