Name: Dona Lee
Nickname: Cake
Location: Alexandria, VA
Age Group: Female 60 - 64
About Me: New, back of the pack triathlete. Started out running for fun and tried marathons but find the training too time consuming. Did sprint and Olympic distance triathlons my first year (2003) and enjoyed the training diversity and events. Was not even last! Getting back into it after some family issues in 2005.

Have completed 4 marathons in the last 17 years, 2 of which were in 2000: Big Sur and 25th Marine Corps.
What I do to pay the bills: Business development for large defense contractor
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: Woodman's a great pit husband.
Short term triathlon goals: Break 2 hrs for sprint
Long term triathlon goals: Maybe, just maybe a 1/2
Fantasy triathlon goals: Any one in a beautiful climate
Three favorite albums: Crash (DMB); Any Alison Krauss;
Favorite book: Lamb by Christopher Moore
Chocolate: but of course
Garlic: come on, I'm Italian
Blue Cheese: Love it!
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: still pasta
My best triathlon advice is: Train consistently, try out your clothes/equipment beforehand, think thru the transitions to help get rid of the butterflies, and make a packing list so you don't forget anything. Email me and I'll send you mine.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: This sounds like fun.
