Why Tri? - I tri because I love the training, love the people involved in the sport, and because it's fun!!!!
Favorite sport and distance - My favorite of the three disciplines changes from day to day. I started with biking, added in running and then learned to swim. 70.3 distance is my favorite because I get to train somewhat long and still have a life outside triathlon. There is energy left to go out for dinner and a movie or go to a party and not be a zombie.
Interesting fact - The most interesting fact about me is that I learned to swim at age 49 so I could do an IM at 50. You know, a bucket list item. It was only going to be one and done. Like most people, I got hooked and have done many since then. Like I said earlier - it's fun.
Favorite pre race meal - pizza. Favorite post race meal - pizza. I'm a purist...I like it plain. OK I also like a nice chocolate protein shake.
