About Me

My name is LaVonne and I just turned 40 (gasp!). I've been doing triathlons for 11 years, with my first being Danskin in 1999. This year I ended my season with Danskin 2009 - a great way to celebrate 10 years of triathloning!

I do distances ranging from sprints to half ironmans, but have yet to really master that half iron distance. I love riding my bike, but tend to be faster on the swim (I'm not sure why). Running is a big challenge for me, mentally and physically. I want to get faster but my legs don't seem to cooperate. Right now I'm focusing on running speed!

I live in the Seattle area and find the rain irritating.
