About

Welcome to my BLOG! I have been passionate about running and working out since my college days, but didn’t start endurance running of any sort until 2006. Even then, I thought I would just do one marathon and check it off my list of things to do before I die. I did my ONE and then several to follow because I was hooked!

What else can I do? Maybe a TRI?

So, in 2009, I trained for my first baby tri (smaller than a sprint TRI as the swim was only 1/4 mile). And, I didn’t know how to swim! I doggie paddled my way through, then biked like mad and ran just as hard, and ended up winning my first baby TRI. I should mention here that the field was extremely small at about 100 peeps, but I was stoked (and, eh hem, I’ve never come close to winning another — HA!).

I then stepped up my TRI training and did a half Ironman in 2010, then another in 2011, followed by my DREAM come true: IRONMAN CANADA. I’d like to do another in a couple of years, but will focus on family, health, and smaller races for the 2012 season.

Please join me on my journey of random thoughts.

  1. Hi Gina,

    Rae forwarded to Earline and me your email to her. And since we follow Rae and her husband, Casey, in their (marathon, tri, ironman) pursuits religiously, I am as surprised as Rae to find you in the same pursuit and with a ‘drivin’ fervor for it. And your picture is very pretty; in fact, at first I thought I was looking at Rae !! Maybe it is partially due to just having the look of a tri-athlete………….is that possibly ?

    Anyway, nice to hear from you, Gina. Earline and I will be very interested in keeping up-to-date on your activities through Rae (who is so excited to now be connected with you).

    • Hi Jim! So good to hear from you!! I am SO happy Rae and I found each other after all these years!! AND, who would’ve thought we have the same passions?!? I am so excited that Rae is also doing IM Canada. I can hardly wait to see her …it’s been forever! I would love to have your and Earline’s support! Thank you for following my adventure. Dad and Kristy are up this weekend so I told them all about finding Rae! (well, I said RaeAnn! HA!) Write me anytime!! email is: trytotriallthree@gmail.com
