Team Toyota!!

Most of you know that I like triathlons. Well this year after I signed up for the Danskin race in Seattle. I got an email asking me to fill out some stuff for Team Toyota. I filled it out, and didn't really think I would get picked.... but I did get picked! I am being sponsored by Team Toyota this season. I get some really cool stuff ~ triathlon events are not cheap!

I get my own webpage off of Team Toyota's site http://www.toyotaenginesofchange.com/Page532.aspx
I don't know how to put that into format so you will have to cut and paste. Team Toyota Engines of Change is all about people who have made a difference in their lives and changed it for the better. They asked me why I do triathlons, and ofcourse I told my story of eating on the cruise, and mentioning I wanted to do a triathlon... after the laughter stopped, something clicked and I went home and signed up. Then the unbelievable happened the stroke (Derrick's) After he was home my mom urged me to still do the Danskin and we did! So there you go that is how I got started.

Why do I keep doing them? Besides being crazy!? Well I fell in love with the sport. It is a goal that I accomplish all on my own. I take time out and train, and I show myself that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to! So that is why I keep doing it.

Come check out the website, I need to change the pic it came out all fuzzy...
I really didn't think I would get picked, and there are only 10 of us for Seattle so I am very honored to be a part of Team Toyota Engines of Change!
