How did you get into the sport of triathlon?: My Freshmen year of college, I decided to become a swimmer in order to get buff, so I joined a club swim team…for a day. After getting lapped multiple times by 12 year old girls, I decided that I might be better served utilizing my running experience. I joined the university triathlon team the next day. After a brutal first race in Rocky Point a few months later, I decided the sport was nuts and swore I’d never do another triathlon. Since my memory is short term, after the summer I bought a bike and started to train for triathlon while continuing to run cross country. Over a decade later, I still train myself and others for triathlons of all distances in Pasadena, CA and maintain active involvement in local triathlon groups.
