How often to do you train? Where do you train?

NYC Rec Centers. Chelsea (25th and 9th ave), and St. John's (Prospect Place between Troy and Schnectady, Brooklyn). The pools are awesome, the gyms are so so. It's $75 a year. I run and bike outside. When it gets warmer, I like to ride down the Belt Parkway, or up towards Nyack. If I'm pressed for time, I'll do a bunch of laps around Prospect Park or Central Park.

You will need a road bike for the Riding Sessions, do you have one?

I used to have a Giant OCR2 road bike. It got stolen in August 2008. I currently have a fixed gear bike that I'm commuting on, and JUST bought a Cervelo P2 SL Dura Ace from Cadence Cycling & Multisport on Hudson Street. Best time to buy is Spring.

If you are an experienced triathlete, would you like to lead a training session?

I can't say I'd be a great leader, I'd rather stay behind and make sure no one gets left behind. I have no problem researching new places to ride.

Are you an experienced triathlete? How long were are you in the sport?

2007 was my first year starting with the Jack Rabbit Indoor Triathlons. I ended up doing 2 sprints tris, 1 olympic tri, and 1 duathlon. Since then, I've done the same three tris in 2008, and I'm scheduled to do them again in 2009.


3:03:20 in my first attempt at the NYC Triathlon in 2007. Really looking to make this a lifestyle.
