How did you get into triathlon?
I loved to swim and ride as a kid but never ran. So after my Ex convinced me to run a marathon and our marathon coach did Tri's, I decided to give it a go with TNT.

How long have you been doing triathlon?
10 years

Favorite workout?
Any Recovery workout I have on my schedule

Do you have training partners?
Katie, Suzanne, Kym, Adrian or really anyone that will hang with me at the back of the pack.

Best Race?
Ironman Coeur d'Alene 2007 - Not my fastest race but the one where the plan came together the best and I enjoyed running a lot of that marathon. I would have been even better had I not tried to run with the hot girl for 5 miles during the middle of the race.

Worst Race?
Ironman Coeur d'Alene 2003 - All I am going to say is that it is not right when it is hotter in Idaho than Lubbock in June. Brutal race, I walked the marathon on that one.
