The pool is like my second home. I am on the Santa Rosa Neptunes and I spend most of my life at the pool. I train 6 days a week 2 times a day for 1 hour and 45 min. to 2 hours. I try to work hard every day but sometimes you just have those off days, but lately it seems like I am having those off days more and more.
I love to eat. When I travel I love to try different kinds of food. When I have a triathlon or any kind of race that requires my family to fly, we will turn it into a vacation. We have gone to so many different places and have tried so many different things. Thats one of my favorite parts of traveling.
I love skiing, hiking, swimming, biking, and running in the Sierras. Since I love the Sierras so much we got a Golden Retriever and named her Sierra. I find the Sierras to be a pretty beautiful place, I love to go on long hikes by myself to just breath in the clean fresh air when I am stressed out from school, my sports, or my family. I find it to be very comforting.
Over the summer I qualified for the National Championships in Ohio, and in August, I raced in Ohio. It was not the best race by far, but it was an awesome experience. There were some good parts and some really bad parts. It was my first National Championships, and I hope I qualify again next season to do way better.
I love to travel. I travel all over the country for triathlons. My parents are the best because they provide the best equipment for me to race with. Flying is scary to me, but cool at the same time. I hate the landing part and how the plane bumps around when there is turbulence. I thought I would be used to it by now because I fly so often but I'm not.
Annadel State Park is where I love to run. I love being outside and being around all the plants and animals. I have been running at Annadel for so long now, its almost impossible for me to get lost. I know the park really well. I've had some really great runs there and some really bad runs like when I tripped over a rock and hurt my ankle, but its always my favorite place to bring the pain.
This is my bike, the Cervelo s5. I LOVE my bike so much. Its my most favorite thing that I own. I race my bike all over the country in triathlons. This bike is the same kind of bike that Mark Cavendish rides and he is a professional cyclist. He raced in the Tour de France.
I love to watch Netflix in my bed on cold, dark, and rainy days, and I love how there are hundreds of shows and movies to keep me occupied for hours.
