What do you want people to know about triathlon? That it is a lot of fun. I love training with my friends on my team, getting to race with them, and cheering for everyone!
In the past 3 years, Taylor has competed in over 20 multisport races and several road races, often making the podium. She loves to compete, and is an amazing cheerleader for her friends and teammates. We can definitely see some team captain and leadership roles in her future.
