Hi! I'm Catholic Christian, 34, and married. I have a Master's Degree in Zooarchaeology, which means I specialize in animal bone in prehistoric and historic archaeological sites: what did they hunt? What parts did they eat? What time of year, was there a drought, was the population under dietary stress? What environment did they live in or travel to and how far did they range? Those are among my favorite research questions.
I completed my first Olympic-distance triathlon: 1.5 km swim, 22 mi. bicycle, 10 km run in 3:54:37. My super sweet husband saw me from the waterline and walked along with my final .5 km so that I could see and hear him clapping with every stroke! I saw him four times during the race, and just before the finish line he met me at the bottom of the final hill, ringing the race-giveaway cowbell (if you go to race events you know that's the standard noisemaker!) and cheering me on. It was the best first Oly-distance triathlon I could have had!
