Danskin Women’s Triathlon Series

This past Sunday saw thousands of women descend upon Genesee Park in South Seattle for the 17th Annual Danskin Women’s Triathlon Series. They swam 1/2 a mile in Lake Washington, biked 12 miles on I-90 and ran 3.1 miles around Genesee Park. There were women of all shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds who participated. I’m happy to say that I was one of those women.

A co-worker convinced me to sign up for the triathlon and I’m glad that she did. I trained with the Team Danskin Heart Zones training group, which was founded by Sally Edwards, a pioneer in the sport of triathlon and former Ironman world record holder. The group training was amazing as was having the opportunity to spend time with Sally Edwards and hear her speak.

It was an unbelievable experience and I would encourage all women to give it a try.
