Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Carrie - I just checked out the final results on Ironmanalive, and now I am even more impressed. How good did it feel to pick people off throughout the bike and run? You get out of the water in 1278th place...finish the bike in 1049th...and complete the race in 471st place. Awesome! Top 25% finish--Wow!
