What makes you a Tough Chik: EVERYTHING!

Fun Fact: I am a cyclist who has signed up for an Ironman, having never done a triathlon and I can’t swim (but I’m learning).  Hooray!  Here’s to a fun 2013!




Name: Elisabeth

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Sport of Choice: Triathlon, Running

2013 Race Plans: Desert Tri International; Wildflower Long Course AND Olympic (fundraising with TNT for Wildflower Long); Vineman 70.3; Hood to Coast; Marine Corps Marathon and New York City Marathon.

What makes you a Tough Chik: I don’t give up – ever.  I could barely ride my road bike a year ago, and in late July I completed an ironman – Vineman 140.6! Even after I crashed my bike and got a concussion last December, after only about a month and a half of cycling, I got back out there.  I will work through any obstacle and keep going, no matter what.  Life is too short to sit on the side lines or wait for the perfect moment, so I seize every moment.  That’s what makes me a Tough Chik.

If you had a super power, what would it be? Super speed (I wanna be fast!), or super strength (being strong is awesome!), or invisibility (that could be REALLY interesting…), or the ability to breathe underwater (see below – I love OWS). I can’t pick! 😉

Fun Fact: My favorite workout is open water swimming (OWS) – I LOVE ocean swimming, even in the dirty (polluted) Santa Monica Bay.  And, I am secretly starting to love cycling.  Sh! Don’t tell anyone, actually go for it, they’d never believe you! 😉

I’m an L.A. girl through and through, born and raised, laid back, loving the LA lifestyle.
