About Me

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

This just in - run leg 1

For the first 3.5 miles, Carrie's pace was a solid 9:29, right where she planned it. And she looks strong and happy, doesn't she! Only time will tell how many folk she picks off during the run, but she's off to a fantastic start.
