Kelownagurl Tris Triathlon Podcast

Synopsis

Once a couch potato, now a 4th year age grouper triathlete, Kelownagurl talks about her goals, her training, and her life in general in hope of providing encouragement and inspiration to other "average" people who have always dreamed of doing something they never thought possible. Her motto is "It's never too late to be what you might have been" ~ George Elliot (running, swimming, cycling, biking)
