I started training for a triathlon in 2014 while looking for something different to do to pass the Alberta cold winters.  Within a few months, I was completely hooked, and before I knew it had signed up for a local triathlon. 

 

As I have heard from many people now, once you do one triathlon, you keep on going, so I signed up for a half Ironman race which I completed in March 2015.  I absolutely loved it and plan to do many more in the future.  The lifestyle and family-like atmosphere within the triathlon community is what makes this such a great sport.  Hope to see you out there!


Race Results:

Ironman 70.3 Buenos Aires was my second triathlon and first half Ironman.  I loved the race and completed it in 5:09:42.
