What brought you to triathlon?
I had the desire to do something extraordinary. I had almost every odd against me: I could not swim, I didn't own a bike (I had not been on a bike in over 20 years) and was recovering from double pneumonia, so I couldn't run. The desire to overcome all of those odds superseded my fears and on June 20, 2010, I became a Triathlete.
What athletic achievement are you most proud of?
Learning how to swim and going on to complete 3 Triathlons that same year (2 Sprints and 1 Olympic distance race).
Best Advice for someone thinking of doing their first triathlon:
If you believe you can, and are committed, then you can complete a Triathlon and anything else that you want in life!
Goals for 2011?
Become a faster Triathlete and complete a half Marathon
