|Bucket List Race||Olympic distance 2020 and if all goes well, Ohio 70.3 2021|
I started running 5 years ago when I turned 40. At that time, all I wanted was to be able to run a 5k non-stop. Once I completed that goal, I set little goals until I reached the the half marathon distance. I have since done 7 half marathons and started looking at other things that I would like to accomplish. I have always been afraid of the water so I took up swimming. It was while learning to swim that I heard about multi sport races and then I decided that I should set a goal to do an open water triathlon. I’ve done races that have involved kayaking (instead of swimming) and I’ve done them indoors (pool swimming) but I’ve never done one where it involved swimming in a lake. So this year with the help of Jen Borovica, Rob Reddy and others in the group I successfully completed multiple sprint distances this summer. Next year, I would like to focus on becoming even more comfortable in the water, improving my swim, bike run times and successfully completing an Olympic distance race.
