Richmond Triathlon Club

A fellow TRIgirl nominated me to the Richmond Triathlon Club board of directors. Hmmmmm. This could be fun.
Here is my "platform"....looks like I'm up against some stiff competition...13 candidates for 7 spots.

Triathlons changed my life. But, I'm guessing most triathletes can say the same thing. There is something about swimming, biking and running that changes you. Maybe it's the discipline it takes to train for a race months in advance, in good weather and in bad. Maybe it is the camaraderie you find with others in your sport. Or maybe it is the inspiration you gain from watching someone who is more challenged than you find the strength to do what they thought they couldn't.
If I'm elected to the board of directors, it will be my goal to uphold the Richmond Triathlon Club's mission of helping more people becoming triathletes. And as more athletes come to the sport, I will try to find ways for Richmond to host more races of the highest caliber.
I've been racing since 2002 and a Richmond Tri Club member since 2004. I have been a TRIgirls (and its predecessor Triathlonmoms) Teamleader since 2002. As a Trigirl Teamleader, I mentor new triathletes, raise funds for TRIgirl's "adopted" non-profits, organize TRIgirl social events, and lead cycling rides. Currently, I am training with TRIgirls for Eagleman 1/2 Ironman in June. Also, I have a triathlon blog http://triathlonmom.blogspot .com
