One day, Kim asked if anyone would be interested in competing in the Trifitness Challenge in Tampa. I was very interested and trained for 6 months. Our first group consisted of 7 ladies, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. We motivated each other, supported each other, and pushed each other farther than we thought we could go. I found that surrounding myself with like-minded people with common goals helps keep me focused (or regain focus when needed). I competed a second time last summer and absolutely intend on going again in 2018 and beating my times.
