Why do you do Triathlon? I race triathlon because it makes me feel so healthy, strong and alive. I believe there are so many wonderful benefits to this sport. Above all, it gives you the opportunity to set a goal, work hard and then hopefully achieve things you once thought were impossible. I am a very competitive person and I enjoy pushing my body to the limit in training and racing day in and day out and I have learned through racing triathlon that hard work always, always pays off.
What are your top 5 race results?
4th female Pro Mooseman 70.3 2011
7th female Pro Ironman Lake Placid 2011
9:42 Ironman Arizona
2nd Place World Snowshoe championships and National Championships
National Snowshoe champion 2010
What’s your favorite race and why? I love Mooseman 70.3 located in Bristal, New Hampshire. It is a hilly, challenging hometown race. The hills are good for me because I am tiny. Also, historically the water is always very cold and for some reason that makes me swim fast! You also get New Hampshire maple syrup at the awards ceremony!
What’s your favorite workout? I love Sunday split runs. For instance: 60 minute easy morning run followed by a 60 minute bike. Anytime after 3pm another 90 minute evening run is done. It makes me feel strong and gets me ready for the lond day of ironman racing!
What is your favorite pre-race meal? Simplicity and no fiber! Half a plain bagal with a peanut butter GU, GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Drink and a half of a banana.
How do you celebrate after a big race? Pizza, hamburger, french fries, a sip of wine, and bed :)
Whats was the last song you listened to? Fort Minor's "Remember the Name"
Whats a hobbie of yours besides triathlon? Snowshoeing and Zoot clothing shopping sprees!
What is favorite Zoot product? I could not live without the Zoot Ultra compression tights. Perfect for tired legs post Ironman and extremely effective in reducing delayed muscular soreness and speeding up recovery. I also have never run faster than I have in the Zoot Ultra TT 5.0 racing shoes!
What is your ultimate triathlon goal? To place top ten among professionals at the Ironman World Championships
