My name is Sabrina and I live in Chesterfield, VA. My sport of choice is triathlon, but I started as a runner. I got into triathlon because I wanted a new athletic challenge, even though I couldn't swim. I learned how to swim when I was 37 and completed my first tri in August 2011.
I have completed numerous tris. Unfortunately the Iron distance continues to elude me. I have attempted the distance 4 times. 3 of the 4 times I made the swim cut-off, but I was in the water for too long (2+ hours), and become nauseous and dizzy during the bike. At the one race I had an successful swim, the city had one of its hottest days in history, and my day ended with me on the ground by an aid station, having ice packed in my kit.
My dream of becoming an Ironman is on-hold indefinitely. I had both of my hips replaced this year due to severe osteoarthritis. I look forward to getting back to triathlon next year, and my primary focus will be racing since joy since I couldn't this past year.
