Real Name: Tricia Weston
Birthday: Mar 20, 1967
About Me: I was raised in Easton, MA and went to college in VT. As a child, I grew up in sports and was All-American in Field Hockey and a 3-sport student in high school holding Captain positions in all sports (field hockey, basketball, tennis, track). My senior year in high school I was given the title and financial endorsement from as Most Athletic. I was granted a partial athletic scholarship to St Michael's College in Winooski, VT for field hockey. I thank those people who touched my life in a way that was positive and kept me moving (literally) in the right direction and kept me involved in sports - I had the will and desire and at a young age was excelling in the sport of choices. I had the most amazing coaches who gave me the confidence and push I needed when I needed it - I still think of them today when I am training.
I currently reside in Newton, MA with my husband (my best friend) and my 2 children and dog Gus. We have home in VT (Sugarbush) and we consider VT home. My husband and I are 'outdoor enthusiasts' making sure we have some sort of 'activity' planned for the weekend or 'something on the tape' for the months ahead. I've never stopped and DNF is not part of my DNA. As I get older I realize and see the importance of being healthy both physically and spiritually. Longevity is what i strive for and doing my best and giving 110% in anything I do I feel is the best example I can set as a mother.
Motivation: My personal desire and spirit that burns inside me to compete and to excel in no matter what I do or what I set out to do
