About Me: I've been into fitness and exercise for years, but never took it to another level until I decided to train for a triathlon. With a weight training & swimming background, decided to try my skill (or lack thereof) at a sprint triathlon. Completed it, loved it, haven't looked back since.
What I do to pay the bills: Marketing
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: If I say no one, is that an invitation to be robbed? In that case, my Super Duper, High Stakes, Take-no- prisoners Security System & quite famished attack dog.
Short term triathlon goals: To do races
Long term triathlon goals: To do races
Three favorite albums: Can you say iTunes?
Favorite book: Way of the Peaceful Warrior
Favorite movie: Can't pick just one.
Chocolate: Don't eat it much.
Garlic: Avoid it.
Blue Cheese: No thanks.
For breakfast, I usually have: Protein Shake and one of the following:
1) Plain Oatmeal w/fruit, nuts, cinnamon
2) Kashi-brand waffles, toast
3) Cereal, toast, fruit
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Smoothie w/milk, protein powder, fruit, nuts, yogurt, maybe some PB
My best triathlon advice is: Train Hard. Live Well.
My best non-triathlon advice is: Life's not supposed to be easy. If it is, you're doing it wrong.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I need a challenge.
Everything I need to know I learned from: Life
My deepest, darkest secret is: We don't know each other THAT well yet.
