"Todd - if you are that fast, start out at the front. You won't have people bothering you :) If you wait, you would be really frustrated by the slower swimmers and trying to get around us. I am not slow, slow, but I'm not…"
"I did the exact same thing in Texas. I waited until the gun went off and the place cleared out! Then, I helped a girl having a severe panic attack (sadly, she had to get out of the water and never started the race). Not sure how…"
"I am in my longest week this week, and then the downhill taper begins! After a bad IMTX nonstart, I was going to let this slot go (and a foundation slot at that). However, due to life showing me a few things, I decided to go for it, and…"

This will be my first IM. I am a mom to a 10 year old - most amazing daughter - and she is getting into the sport as well. I love to train, love animals, am a clean freak, perfectionist, have a PhD in research and statistics and work from that supports my *habit* :)
My Tri Story:
I started racing exactly one year ago - a sprint distance that i had one week to prepare for, not even sure I could swim 300 meters. And well, I barely could - lots of resting! Biking is my thing.

Training Partners, Training Groups, Event Meet-ups, Friends
