I am an "adult onset" athlete - picked up running, followed by biking, and then swimming all in my 20s. Discovered triathlons through a somewhat dare by my brother in law. Now I am aiming to complete the Nubble Light Challenge in August 2023. I also LOVE Zwift, where I ride and race under the name Emily van der Chat. I think it's incredibly important that women of all ages and stages model athleticism for their own personal reasons rather than to fit any sort of image or persona. In addition to being active, I'm a mom to two kids ages 6 and 3, a wife to an arts administrator, a Partner at a boutique marketing consulting firm, a baseball and pro cycling fan, and a former classically trained musician.
