My tri career started when Katherine was writing a profile about me. She noticed that I run a triathlon business and had never done a triathlon. She asked me about it and I told her that I have always been planning on doing one, but just hadn’t gotten around to it yet.
She then proceeded to publicly challenge me to do a triathlon before the end of the year. If you don’t know, I am having twin boys in the next month or so, and she thought I needed to do it before the boys were born. I accepted the challenge sometime in July.
I decided I better find a sprint tri and the later the better (more time to train). I chose the Cyman Triathlon because it was close and the latest one I could find. We also were a sponsor at this race, so why not?
