How did you get into Aquabike (swim-bike races)?
Well, if I wanted to compete at the National and International levels I had to not include running! There is nothing worse than arriving at T2 (2nd transition of a triathlon) in good position to win, only to get passed by a good portion of the field. Don’t misunderstand: I like to run, just not competitive enough. I’ve paid coaches and it has helped and although improvement was accomplished, a 26 minute 5k for a Triathlon anchor becomes an anchor when men my age are still running 19 and 20 minute 5k’s. One more reason, I have been swimming since I was 12 (just a few years ago!), and distance freestyle and breaststroke is my specialty. In the 2015 Senior Games (Olympics) I was awarded Gold in the 200yd Breaststroke and a Bronze in the 100yd Breaststroke. Subsequently, the miles of breaststroke has put a lot of pressure on my knees. Hence, one more reason for my need of KT Tape.
