Additional Words from Kinnie…
I participate in triathlons to complete them as a personal challenge. Last year, I completed four triathlons with my first one being the Danskin’s Women’s Triathlon in Austin. Doing triathlons has not only brought me a sense of achievement, but I have found an amazing new group of friends who are an inspiring and encouraging part of my life. Becky McMorries is my triathlon coach who since January 2011 has challenged me every week with a workout schedule that leads me to my goals of completing and improving my performance in triathlons. Last January, I did not know how to swim well and was afraid of deep water. With her help I was able to learn how to swim and in my last triathlon, swam one mile in Offats Bayou in the 5i50 Olympic Triathlon in Galveston.
