How did you get into triathlon?
I like to swim, I like to cycle, I kinda like to run... put them together and... tada!
How long have you been doing triathlon?
Officially, for about a year... I've done some sprint tri's a few times in the last 5 years, but recently decided to dig a bit further in.
Do you have training partners?
That's why I joined this group!
Over the course of my first high school season I dropped over 1 min off of my 500yd Freestyle time and at the "Last Chance Swim Meet" came within .02seconds of making the state swim cut. (I went 5:42:43 and the cut was 5:42:41) I can remember the race second for second and have visual imprints of it on my mind. It was one of a few events in my like that was character-defining.
In many ways- the same race as my best race!
Why you do triathlons?
To stay fit and healthy, to de-stress, and to hang out with cool people.
What's next for you?
Aiming for Toyota US Open- olympic distance and some sprints.
Most embarrassing moment doing sports?
Running Shoe that you wear?
Mizuno Wave Inspire
What time do you wake up?
On average 6ish... but if I am working out in the am closer to 5:15ish.
Favorite song to train to?
Hrmmmm... this is a moving target. Right now I get pretty jazzed to "Blow" by Ke$ha and "Jigsaw Falling into Place" by Radiohead. Kinda opposite on the spectrum- but they both do the job.
Out of all 3 sports- which is your favorite?
Swimming- I swam for USS teams all through childhood and through High School. When I run I am literally a fish out of water.
What kind of food do you eat during a workout?
Gu, shock-blocks, fig newtons.
Favorite food (regular)?
Indian food or Mexican
Other sports interest?
swimming, cycling, and running are enough to keep me busy
Something that you like to do that is not sports related?
I guess I better come up with something for this box.... up until recently I've poured all my free time into getting professionally licensed- but that's pretty lame.
Favorite TV show/movie?
Glee, The Good Wife/movies are moving targets... I really like 500 Days of Summer though.
Family and friends
Interesting fact about yourself?
I was born in Germany but was only there a year so I don't remember any of it.
What do you like to do to get away from triathlon?
Travel- but I don't do it often enough.
