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

Come to Mama!

This little guy is on his way to me as we speak! My Erin Baker's Tri Team 2009 Kestrel Airfoil Pro! Special thanks to Steve at Kestrel Bikes for being so patient with me as I went back and forth on my questions, measurements, and even style of bike I wanted to order. I went back and forth more times than I want to count, but finally (after hours of discussion, lost nights of sleep, and ultimate relenting), settled on the Airoil Pro SL! 



Also, here are first pics where I'm sporting my Erin Baker's Race Kit. I pulled the ultimate "no-no" and raced in an outfit I'd never even tried on! In fact, I didn't remove the tags until race morning. Guess what? It worked out perfectly!

I saw this bike at the Oceanside 70.3. It IS indeed a very sweet ride. You are lucky.

The Erin Baker's is a nice look for you, Carrie! Sweet bike, too! I'm excited to see where it takes you.

Your form, bounding strong up that hill, scares me.

There are no similar pictures of me.

That bike is HOT!

Oh, how did the new race kit look with the Hanna Montana fuzzy faux Crocs?

The race kit is cool! Like the white on the shorts. Look forward to your thoughts on the new bike.

Good job at Wildflower. The pics are a nice added bonus!
