How did you get into triathlon?
My friend Lindsey had done one in 2007 and I wanted to do one too. I just had knee surgery in April 2008 and this seemed like a great way to get back in shape.
How long have you been doing triathlon?
Since July 2008.
I do really enjoy morning runs but the long bike rides are pretty great too.
Do you have training partners?
Whoever shows up :)
DRC Half Marathon 2007/3M Half Marathon/2009 River Cities Sprint Tri
Cowtown Half Marathon 2008. I do not recommend running in 38 degree rain with a sinus infection. Its gross and you run really slow.
Why you do triathlons?
Because its fun.
What's next for you?
Vineman 70.3 July 2010 and NYC Marathon November 2010 - some other stuff in between.
Most embarrassing moment doing sports?
Cheering half of a football game without realizing I didn't have on my bloomers. Whoopsies.
Running Shoe that you wear?
Adidas Adistar Ride (formerly Cushion 6) - I am on my 12th pair.
What time do you wake up?
On training days, 5:25am. Otherwise 7:00am
Favorite song to train to?
Normally something very upbeat that I can lip sync to as I run. People on the Katy Trail LOVE IT!
Out of all 3 sports- which is your favorite?
Running, but cycling is a close second, basically because I'm just so good at it ;)
What kind of food do you eat during a workout?
Gu. I love Gu. Yum. If I am riding then I can have some Clif Shot Blocks or Sport Beans instead.
Favorite food (regular)?
It's all pretty good.
Other sports interest?
Core Fusion at Exhale Spa.
Something that you like to do that is not sports related?
Favorite TV show/movie?
Favorite TV Show - that is tough. Of all time, that would be Friends. Currently, probably How I Met Your Mother/The Office/30 Rock
The hope and possibility of improvement.
Interesting fact about yourself?
I was a ballet dancer, cheerleader and piano player growing up. Never even ran more than a mile until 2007.
What do you like to do to get away from triathlon?
I am sort of a joiner - DRC, Junior League, DMA, Lee Park...so I'm always busy.
