As a four-time Ironman Finisher, I see another one in my near future.  I've additionally completed a dozen or so Half-Irons and also enjoy the shorter race distances.

 
Hi Everyone!

My name is Lindsay, and I've been racing triathlons now for about 15 years (geez,...that makes me feel old!).  I have a deep love for the sport of triathlon, and a long-term commitment to training, racing, cheering on fellow athletes, and introducing others to this great sport.  The highlight of my season last year was watching two good friends complete their first Half Irons in Calgary.  Emotions ran high at the finish line.  It was awesome. 

 

It may sound cliché, but it is amazing to help others get involved in, and learn about triathlon.  I thoroughly enjoy helping others with the fundamentals, like learning to change a flat tire, and overcoming the fear of open water swimming.  My strongest discipline is swimming, followed by biking and, well, I prefer to be on the receiving end of running advice.  I moved to Alberta from Minnesota a couple of years ago where I raced for a local bike shop for a number of years, and I'm a big believer in supporting local businesses.  I have nothing but good things to say about Element, and would love to spread the good word!
