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.

Favorite workout?
I do really enjoy morning runs but the long bike rides are pretty great too.

Do you have training partners?
Whoever shows up :)

Best Race?
DRC Half Marathon 2007/3M Half Marathon/2009 River Cities Sprint Tri

Worst Race?
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.

Spouse/Significant Other?
Single

Other sports interest?
Core Fusion at Exhale Spa.

Something that you like to do that is not sports related?
Facebook/Twitter

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

Greatest motivator?
The hope and possibility of improvement.

Hometown?
Columbus, Georgia

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.
