|Bucket List Race||Ironman World Championship|
I competed in my first Triathalon in 2017 at the age of 64. This was the Couer D'Alene Ironman. I figured if I could survive the swim I'd consider it a victory (9th place AG). Had a blast. Competed in 2 events in 2018 Santa Cruz 70.3 (6th place AG) and Maryland 140.6. Took an age group podium spot (4th) in Maryland. Hurt my ankle in 2019... chasing my dog down a stairway which was a bit of a setback to training but back on course for 2020. Member of Enve Racing for 2019. An avid cyclist for over thirty years, a college football player (William & Mary), I have 5 kids and five grandkids whom I try and engage in a variety of sports. Talked on of my sons into doing Santa Cruz with me.... great time with him. Have really grown to enjoy swimming. The wetsuit technology makes it fun! Would also like to squeeze in a swim run in 2020 if the schedule allows.
