Domestic engineer or household CEO and director of child development (stay-at-home mom) for twenty plus years. The most challenging and rewarding endeavor of my life. I played college basketball, started running after college because women's basketball pick up games were hard to come by. Running led me to triathlon, triathlon led me to Wattie Ink. Running and triathlon gave me a sense of accomplishment while staying at home with my two kids. Getting up to run at 4:30am wasn't always appealing but atlest I got something accomplished! My kids are now 19 & 21 and still need their mom, especially during this crazy 2020. I now own 4 Airbnbs and manage and clean them to to pay for triathlon races and travel. I am looking forward to racing again in 2021.
