Ive been participating in Triathlons for about three years now. Decided to sign up for a 70.3 (Maine) 2017, and trained the entire summer. It helped to pull me out of a hole that I had gotten in, get out and give me an outlet for the energy. Not to mention Im a Type One diabetic, and the exercise really helped with control. Ive been a type one for over 20 years, but the exercise made this EASY. Anyways, signed up for Lake Placid 140.6 the following year (2018) and did Quassy that spring in order to get used to the hills. Ended up with a good coach, and a supportive type one diabetic community and have been going hard since then! I really enjoy the bike and the run, but swimming. No thanks! Hoping to get faster in all regards, and keep making amazing new friends along the way. Last year I sherpa'd for four friends doing Chatty 140.6 and Maryland 140.6 in the same weekend, along with me participating in the Chatty relay (bike leg).....and that was a highlight of the season!
