Why are you involved with the USA Triathlon Foundation:  I am absolutely passionate about triathlon. I have produced a kids triathlon in the Houston area for the past 5 years and want to encourage, ignite and inspire the next generation of triathletes so they find the sport sooner than I did (at age 50)!

Athletic Background: I really had almost no athletic background until age 49 when I started running to deal with a child who had become addicted to prescription drugs. Then a friend encouraged me to do a sprint triathlon with her and I was hooked! Two years later, I completed a full Ironman. Now I am a 6 time IRONMAN Finisher, 9 time Half IRONMAN Finisher, and have completed over 25 sprint and Olympic distance races, as well as many 5k, 10k, Half Marathons and Marathons. I run, swim and bike every day and work hard to improve and hope to qualify for some iconic competitions in the future.
