How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

I was a high school and college athlete and went into the corporate world leaving all sports behind. After ten years of missing competitive sports I found the sport of triathlon in 2011 with the NBC coverage of the Ironman in Kona Hawaii. I became so fascinated with the challenge of doing a race that included 3 sports at such long distances. I missed the feeling of training and being in a healthy lifestyle that it was a perfect time for me to get back into sports and try something completely new and challenging. I did a 70.3 and a full distance Ironman in my first year of triathlon and I feel in love with the highs and lows each sport provides in training and racing.
