I've been doing triathlons since 2004. In 2005, I did 10 races, which I learned was WAY too many for me! Now I do about 4-5 per season. I prefer the sprint distance, but I've recently done a few Olympics. I race in the Athena division, and I've been quite successful within that group. I enjoy training and racing, but I try to keep my my family (husband Paul, dog Sadie, and cat Curie) and job (engineer at a large defense contractor) as my top priorities.
