“I am going to go for Skeese Greets Triathlon ( It’s run by Stacy Keese, who is the wife of the ‘Jack’ of Jack & Adams bike shop. She has a greeting card company, and every spring she puts on an all-women’s tri. It’s a 300-meter swim, 11-mile bike and 2-mile run. I love this race. It encourages all women of all ages, shapes and sizes to come out and partake. It is an awesome, nonjudgmental environment for women, especially first-timers, and the distances are that which even if you have never even considered a triathlon, you can wrap your head around. Given all the super-competitive races that I do all year, there is nothing better than doing Stacy’s race, as it takes me back to why I started these things 10 years ago—because they are fun!”
