My first triathlon was the Ballwin Tri in 2004. I side stroked, biked and walk/jogged my way to the finish. I joined the St. Louis Triathlon Club in June of 2006. I have never been more happy with a decision. Since then I have done many sprint triathlons, several olympic distance triathlons, and two half iron distance triathlon. Through membership with the tri club I have met many good friends and learned so much about triathlon. The tri club is a great source of knowledge and motivation. After having spent 3 years on the Tri Club Board of Directors I still am very interested in being involved in the club. I thought group events would be a good fit for me. My goals have always been to get more members involved and to learn from other members. See you at an event!
