sport: Triathlon

My first love was marathon running, but I decided to learn to swim freestyle in 2010 to compete in an Ironman with my husband. I love triathlon because with three sports to master, there is always a new skill to learn. I also try to set an example for my kids about living a healthy, active lifestyle, setting hard goals and facing fears. Thinking about setting that example for them has gotten me through many tough patches in my races.
