How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

I swam throughout high school competitively and originally attended a college with no men’s swim team. Due to my drive to workout and compete, a couple friends recommended training for a triathlon. I decided that I would compete in a 70.3 race in Massachusetts that summer. Unfortunately the race didn’t go so well and I bled through my shoes on the run (didn’t wear socks). Even through all of that I had a blast. Riding back home with my mom to Maryland the next day – I knew I was hooked.
