I have been doing triathlons since 2011 so I started a bit late but got bitten by the bug and have challenged myself ever since. I'm an adventurer and have even traveled to Antarctica to work at the South Pole. I also love to hike, kayak, travel, and explore new places to eat and drink. I've been a safety engineer for 12 years and my job has taken me to some interesting places. I love the challenge triathlon training brings to my life and I want to see what's possible in this next stage of racing over age 50! I moved to Washington state 4 years ago after living in California all my life so training is different in this cold, wet but beautiful location. I'm looking to push the limits of what an "older" athlete can do. I want to help change the face of racing over 50 if I can and maybe inspire some who think they can't do triathlons as they age. This year I'm challenging myself to a podium finish even if it's in a smaller local race. I know I can do it!
