|Joined Club In:
||As an RN, I volunteered in the medical tent during Ironman Canada events, in both Penticton and Whistler, and was always inspired by the grit of the multisport athlete. In 2016 as an avid life-long runner, facing lots of joint wear and tear, I was encouraged by our son, and a friend, both of whom were competing in triathlon, to consider registering for an event. I have been racing since that time and love the training process and the excitement of race days.
||The annual Cultus Lake Triathlon.
|What’s on your Playlist:
||I love music from the 70’s: Earth, Wind and Fire, Fleetwood Mac.
|Best Tip for a New Club Member:
||I was very nervous when I joined PMC. My first club event was a group ride where I was warmly welcomed. I was made to feel comfortable even though I felt completely out of my comfort zone. Try to relax, and enjoy the process of “progress, not perfection”. We are all here to support each other.
|Tri Goal for 2023:
||To continue training in all 3 disciplines, racing in some local Sprint/Standard events with the goal of being on the podium in my age-group, and having some fun in the process with like-minded athletes.
