Why did you choose to participate in a triathlon? What keeps you motivated for training?

I chose to participate in a triathlon because I wanted to stay motivated for my upcoming Bank of America Chicago Marathon in October. I stay motivated by trying to achieve a certain body composition.

What do you find more rewarding about training for a triathlon?

Training for a triathlon encompasses more than just a single activity, diversifying the training and the fun!

Have you completed a triathlon before? If so, what ones and how many?

Yes, I have when I was in high school.

What lead you to triathlons?

I want to take on the challenge!

How will you manage training for three different sports?

By managing my time and having a set training schedule, I hope to achieve my goal for this triathlon.

Are there any challenges that you are anticipating for training? Anything that you’re looking forward to?

Challenges that I anticipate include managing my time with nursing school and other various activities I have planned. I am looking forward to the finish line!
