How many years in TRI?
This is my 13th triathlon season.
Do you remember your first Tri event? How did it go?
How could I forget! It was a sprint in May at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, WY. After what seemed an endless pool swim, I remember breaking ice as I stepped on a puddle on the way to my bike. I got lost on the bike course; by then I was pretty much the only one on the course. Then the unbelievable pain of that first bike to run brick! But when I was done, I was hooked!
What other hobbies are you into?
Being from Colorado, I like winter sports and get to ski and snowshoe in the Sierra. I love the California Delta and like to fish if I get a chance. If I ever sit still, I make cross stich Christmas stockings.
What goals do you hope to achieve before you hang up your wetsuit?
USAT honors triathletes that have completed 100 triathlons; Olympic distance Age Group Nationals next weekend will be my 62nd triathlon, I’d like to get at least 100 in. I hope to be that tan wrinkled lady with the 80 on her leg still racing! Registered for CIM and will likely go for Ironman Lake Tahoe 2014.
Apheresis/PICC team nurse at UC Davis Medical Center. I put PICC lines in people and do blood/plasma exchange and stem cell collection procedures.
Little known fact about you?
I am a retired firefighter. I retired as company officer from the Greeley, Colorado Fire Department, in 2007, after 23 years of service.

The STC Kick-off Party for 2012 will be one of our best events yet. Fleet Feet of Sacramento has decided to turn the evening into a HUGE Triathlon event. The evening will start at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3rd with vendor exhibitions and a Fun Run at 6:00 p.m. with the Fleet Feet Running Team. Everyone is invited to run, if you feel like it. Or, you can stay and visit the Exhibitor Booths, including Timex, Zoot, Gatorade, Power Bar, TBF, CWX, and more.
We will hold a raffle for great prizes provided by the vendors and a few others that STC will be providing. We will have more information on Monday evening regarding prizes and other event details.
So, mark your calendar and plan on attending this event with STC and your fellow triathletes. If you haven’t renewed your membership, the STC 2012 Kick-off Party is a perfect time to do it.
