    Crazy to Tri

    My first triathlon was summer 08.  Everyone told me I was crazy.  I actually got tired of hearing it after awhile!  One morning, while out cycling up a long hill, I stopped for a breather.  A teenage boy asked if I biked up the whole hill.  Yup, I nodded...

    I Did The Sprint Triathlon

    A few years ago, I was a bit out of shape and decided to set a goal of completing a sprint triathlon. It required a lot of training -- swimming especially -- as I had never taken swimming lessons. I could swim, but my stroke needed a lot of improvement. I had done quite a bit...
