New Athena - Hi :)

Been lurking for a while, finally decided to jump in and join the conversation.

As the title says, I'm firmly in the Athena category. Started as a runner who really hadn't done much bike riding since my mid-teens. Now, firmly in my mid-30's I've apparently lost my mind. My first triathlon will be next Sunday. Training around a full time job and grad school has been interesting.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and say hi.

Dawn
