Triathlon has changed my life in so many ways. I never thought I was going to be successful as a professional athlete. It was something I thought would be fun to try, but never something I thought I'd be able to support myself with financially. I met my husband through triathlon and that in itself is the greatest thing triathlon can ever give me. As an extra bonus we now travel together and that's huge because I am currently only "home" for three months out of the year. I've gotten to travel to so many amazing and beautiful places that I never would have known to visit had it not been for triathlon. In addition, I've gotten to meet so many wonderful people from all over the world. I've always thought I was the luckiest girl in the world, but with each year it just gets better and better.
