Cheryl has always had a passion for swimming, biking, running, and running since childhood, but didn’t get into triathlons until later in life, as running was her primary background.

Why She is Loco: S
ince childhood, I have always loved the energy and positive feeling of training and competing. Having racing goals and sticking to training plans strengthens the body, relaxes the mind and toughens the spirit!
️ I look forward to 2016 triathlons, bike/running races and don’t forget cyclocross!!!
Favorite Post Food: Pretty much anything I can get my hands on asap – Usually I can find whole or half eaten energy bars in my bag, however nothing beats a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and chocolate milk!
Words to Live By: Don’t give up, don’t give in – Keep pushing!!
What does train hard, race smart, and give back mean to you: I am a firm believer in training hard, sticking to a training plan, and preferably with others, having fun, and ultimately making it to the start line with a smile! Every day we are given opportunities to give back whether in sport or in life- Being thankful and performing random acts of kindness (big or small) makes the world a better place. Amen!
