Becki will be sharing her triathlon and life experiences she’s had over the years.
“I have always loved running. I was a high school track athete, when bone cancer changed my running style forever. At 16 I started running on crutches.
I enjoyed many sports as an amputee, but running was always my favorite. I participated in dozens of 5k and 10k runs over the years. Then I was invited to be part of a triathlon relay team for a 70.3 race. Naturally I did the 13.1 run portion.
A couple years later I was asked to help start the YMCA Paratriathlete Sports Club. I wasn’t a very efficient swimmer and didn’t even own a road bike, but accepted this new challenge.
I discovered I really enjoyed triathlons! Its been my privilege to compete in many local triathlons and a few in other states. My most difficult race was 55 miles long. Now I am a certified Youth and Junior Coach and a USAT 2019 Ambassador.
I want to share my passion for triathlon and encourage others that its never too late to try something new.”
