You’re never too old to Tri!

I tried my first triathlon when I turned 50. I realized that I had discovered my new identity! Training for my following sprint triathlons was hit or miss. My only constant was my cheerleader husband.

It was after our move from Illinois to Florida that I was luckily introduced to Coach Karyn Austin and proudly became one of her Chicks Who Tri. The camaraderie and challenging workouts inspired me to be more committed and focused.

I quickly learned to appreciate Karyn’s thoughtful attention to technique, not only for efficiency but also for the prevention of injury. Her expert knowledge and proper progression of workouts have greatly increased my physical strength and self confidence in my abilities.

Karyn’s obvious passion for coaching, her outgoing personality and sincere concern of me as a person have definitely made training with her an experience I always look forward to.

I’m excited about the 2018 season! I just completed the HITS sprint triathlon in my new age group, 70+, and finished first! Woo hooo!! Thank you Coach Karyn!!!
