About Me: I've lived in New England all my life and I've been in Littleton, NH for the past 6 years. I have two kids, Ian is a junior in high school and Lindsay is a freshman at Clemson University. She is an adrenaline junky like her Mom and has taken up sky diving at school.
I started running track in high school and moved on to marathons in college. I stopped racing shortly after college, but always worked out. In 2002, I wandered over to the dark side.....I was the token female on a co-ed team for 24 hours of Great Glen. I moved on to duathlon, triathlon, and road races, including 3 ironman finishes.
I did my first adventure race in 2006 and loved it. In 2007 I had the opportunity to compete on two very competitve adventure racing teams, Wicked Pissah and Team ABC/Capital Bike.
Oh, and cyclocross, I love cyclocross.......
I really like triathlon, but am a crappy swimmer, so am competitive in anything that does not have a swimming leg!
Motivation: I really love racing.....
Goals: age gracefully (okay, maybe not so much), win, have more stories to tell than Morris at 2 a.m. when we are trekking through the woods....
Favorite Gears: INOV-8 sneakers, love them!!!
Favorite Quotes: What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.
Workout Routines / Fitness Tips: I think the biggest thing I have learned doing long course events is fuel your body correctly and allow adequate recovery time.
Top Sports: Aventure race!!!
