What inspired you to do triathlons: Would watch Kona on TV and would tell myself that I wanted to try that cause I knew it would challenge me.

How did you start doing tri’s: I was doing marathons at the time and wanted to try something different. I was living in Iowa and was surrounded by triathletes. I thought, “I am a runner…I will try swimming.” I couldn’t even get across the pool! I can’t do this! I moved back to Texas and my sis and I were watching the Biggest Loser and they were doing a tri at that time; I turned to her and said…”Let’s do a tri, they can, we can too!” We did!

When was first: 2008 (I think) Austin Danskin Sprint triathlon. It took me over 33 min to do the 1/4 mile swim! It was over a year before I did another one
