She played and coached college tennis, and transitioned to triathlons last year in 2017, without having a background in swimming, biking, or running. She joined T3 after her husband Tim joined, initially for the social aspect, but later decided that exercising and staying in shape were probably good reasons to join a triathlon club too! Joining T3 has been such a rewarding experience for meeting new friends, having tons of support, being pushed to participate in group workouts and races, and having friends with a mutual shared love/hatred for races.
