I have been a triathlete for more than 30 years. My first race was for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and I was persuaded to do it because it took place at the end of my street. Since then, I've raced every distance from sprint to Ironman (Hawaii). I am a USAT Coach and run a youth triathlon club in Arlington, VA. I am a USAT Race Director and stage a youth triathlon each year (except this one) in Arlington, VA. I also am a World Triathlon technical official.
