I found triathlon about 6 years ago, while hiking up in Malibu and thought that maybe someday I would race the local Malibu triathlon. I purchased the "triathlon starter kit" from the nearby triathlon store and soon learned what it was like to train and race for a triathlon (I had no idea what I was doing). Several years later, I have now figured out how to ride a skinny tire bike over a 100 miles, get in/out of transition actually looking like I know what I'm doing, replace a flat in the middle of a race, push myself to the finish line to cross in time to podium, and managed to smile the whole way through, no matter how much it hurts. I'm still excited about pushing myself to see what I can accomplish race day, but also enjoy being a part of a team that has such an amazing community. I look forward to my new adventures, especially now that I am closer to "home base", where my coach may now be able to analyze and understand why I get passed on the run. :)
