Nuun Athlete Bio: Christy Mata

We're proud to welcome International athlete Christy Mata to the Nuun family! Christy is a 26 year old from Panama who recently entered the amateur triathlon world. Christy is having a great season so far, and we wish her much luck in Las Vegas and Kona!

  A bit about Christy: Christy is a lawyer but wanted to try something new so started casually doing racing in Panama. But she quickly fell in love with it and decided to challenge herself in her first international race in 2010 in Pucon. Her first year was overwhelmingly great; she qualified for the World Championships! But in 2011 she hit a wall while living in Switzerland. She felt out of place, worn down and was missing her career back home. So she returned to Panama and regained the motivation she had been missing. In her own inspiring words, "2010 gave me the wings, 2011 gave me the strength and 2012 gives me hope. There is always a place for your dreams to come true…NEVER GIVE UP!"   Started Competing: 2009   Favorite Nuun Flavor: Grape   Accomplishments: -1st in age group at Ironman 70.3 Pucon 2010, qualified for World Champs -1st in age group at Ironman 70.3 St. Croix, qualified for Ironman World Championship Kona 2010. -Ironman Nice 2010 -Challenge Roth 2010 -2nd in age group at Kona Ironman World Championship 2010 -Clearwater 70.3 World Championships 2010 -3rd place St. Croix 2011 -4th place Ironman St. George 2011 -Ironman Frankurt 2011 -Ironman Cozumel 2011, P.R. 10:31 -1st amateur & 1st in age group at 70.3 Panama 2012, qualified for Las Vegas 70.3 World Championship -1st in age group at St. Croix 2012, qualified for Kona

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, terrific blog!
