When I made the decision to embrace the challenge of pursuing my first triathlon, I didn’t know if it would be a bucket list thing, a lifestyle thing or something that I was just darn glad was over and done with. Frankly, I was surprised maybe even a little shocked by how I physically felt when I crossed that finish line. It was seriously nothing short of AMAZING. I was exhausted, elated, proud and relieved. I truly felt connected to my physical self—alive, vital, strong. Maybe this is the healthy version of how meth or heroin addicts feel but I knew then that I wanted more of that feeling and that my 1st TRI would not be my last. And, so began my pursuit and passion for training, competing and connecting into the triathlon experience. With Ryan calling “Triathlon Momma“.
