About Me: I'm a relative newbie to the sport, but have caught the bug. It's also great that my husband, Ryan, is involved as well.....now if only I could beat him.
What I do to pay the bills: Dole out Financial Advice....Ryan and I also work together....Albrecht & Albrecht
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: Belle, the mutt. She sounds mean, but would only harm by licking....except the landscapers, she might actually eat them if given the opportunity.
Short term triathlon goals: Be proud of my Columbia and Eagleman performances this year....whatever that is. I am not sure yet.
Long term triathlon goals: Ironman in 2010 for my 30th.
Fantasy triathlon goals: Kona....if I ever get over my ocean swim fear.
Three favorite albums: Albums?! this is hard. Well, from start to finish I would say:
Pearl Jam Vs.
Counting Crows August and Everything After
NIN With Teeth (my husbands doing)
Favorite book: Gone with the Wind
Favorite movie: Sound of Music....if I want to smile and sing.
Chocolate: The darker the better
Garlic: on everything but my chocolate
Blue Cheese: goes great with burgers and wings
For breakfast, I usually have: cereal or yogurt
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Pizza
My best triathlon advice is: Don't take it so seriously that you stop having fun.
My best non-triathlon advice is: Same as above, funny how that happens.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I can't swim. What the hell am I thinking?...AND, somehow this is Ryan's fault.
Everything I need to know I learned from: watching others mistakes
My deepest, darkest secret is: ...well, it wouldn't be a secret if I told you.
