I was never an athlete until my early forties. I started to walk to lose weight and this turned into running. I loved to run. One day my two good friends and I made a deal. We would do a half marathon and a Spartan race and finally a triathlon. I had eight months to learn to swim. Well, I worked and worked at it and taught myself to swim. I got through that first Sprint tri and exceeded my swim expectations. I went on to so several Oly and a 70.3. Needless to say I was hooked. I'm still working at it and have some races on my schedule for the summer of 2022. I hope to continue to cross start and finish lines for many years to come.
