Sport – Swim, Bike, Run! Triathlete and cyclist, but pure runner at heart. Also a devoted member of the Avalon Park YMCA Tri Club. Active in at least one “leg” of the sport year round and aim to compete in one race per month, usually a triathlon or road race. Currently focused on marathon training for the WDW Marathon in January 2010. Proud to be a vegan athlete since 2008. That means training hard with no meat, no fish, no dairy (no kidding).
