  • Achievements: Other than giving birth to my four children, I am most proud of leaving behind my sedentary lifestyle five years ago and starting to live a healthy, athletic lifestyle
  • Lifelong to do List: Finish a half ironman triathlon. Finish a full marathon. Publish another book. Motivate people to become active. Climb more Colorado mountains. Walk the Appalachian Trail. Go trekking in Norway. Bicycle through the Netherlands. Develop a TV show featuring elderly athletes
  • If I could switch places with someone: It might be fun to be Carol Burnett for half a day, but then I'd want to come home
  • Role Model/Hero: Sister Madonna Buder who finished the Kona ironman at age 78.
  • What are you passionate about? I'm passionate about giving hope to people who think they can't change and helping them improve their lives
  • What would you do if you won the million dollars? Donate half to the Strengthmobile Foundation and spend the other half on a 500-square foot condominium within a mile of Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas
  • People would be surprised to learn: For two years in the mid 1990s, I performed amateur stand-up comedy to compensate for a really grim period I was going through
  • Favorite place you have ever visited: Rural Ireland and Hua Hin, Thailand
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on the Race together: Communicating and working together as a team
