About Me: I think I was a fish in a previous life. I love the water, beach, swimming, anything associated with water. I am a diehard Hokie fan who loves the outdoors. Triathlon was a great addition to my life as it was a perfect excuse to spend as much time outside and get fit. Besides, I think I have a slight bit of ADD when it comes to exercise. I get bored so dividing my training time to three sports is perfect.

When I am not doing tri stuff, I spend as much time as possible with my niece and sister.
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: My golden retriever, Abbey
Short term triathlon goals: get faster and start to enjoy running
Long term triathlon goals: Half-Ironman
Fantasy triathlon goals: Kona Ironman
Chocolate: Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are irresistable!
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Pizza!
My best triathlon advice is: Have Fun! Make each segment an individual race, and set goals within each segment.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I can swim, bike, and run so why not do all of them at the same time?!
