Below are some questions that will help you get to know me a little better ūüôā But feel free to ask away and I’ll answer the best we can!

1) Why 321delish?

This blog started out as a collaboration between me and my friend Chloe. We were both living in DC at the time, training for triathlons (we actually met at the pool), and we shared a passion for good food. We had recently started reading “healthy living blogs” and really enjoyed the stories shared by women just like us- who were trying to balance work, life, and staying healthy. Why couldn’t we do that? And do it as a pair to ease the load a bit?

So, after hours of back and forth about what our name might be, we finally decided on 321delish: 3 sports, 2 friends, 1 delicious obsession (food, duh). We posted our first post on February 14, 2011.

We blogged together as a pair for about 6 months, before life started to get really hectic for both of us. I continued to blog when I could, and after I moved to Florida, I really took the blog on as my own.

Chloe and I are still friends, and the invitation is always open for her to blog here.

2) How did you get into triathlon?

I did my first triathlon in 2008 as part of Team in Training. I had been a swimmer in college, and though I had recently taken to running to maintain my fitness, I was looking to get back in the pool. I didn’t want to join a master’s team- I had already had my fair share of two-hour practices 6 days/week. I figured a tri would get me back in the pool, but not for an atrocious amount of time.

TNT was taking a team to the Philly Tri, and I thought that would be a great race to do. So, I went to an informational meeting and signed up. I’ve been hooked ever since.

3) What is your favorite food?

This is such a tough question for me! I love food, and there are few occasions where I turn up my nose. I’m also quite the indecisive person, so that makes this question extra tricky. But, if I had to pick one (um, or three?), I’d go with peanut butter (especially with bananas or dark chocolate).¬† Creamy or chunky? No matter. Salted or unsalted? Depends on my mood (or what is on sale at the grocery store). I love it in my oatmeal, or on toast, or in my ice cream, or in a noodle dish…I could probably eat it on just about anything. (That’s not a challenge!)

4) What is the coolest place  you have traveled to?

ALASKA! Summer 2013 I had an opportunity to hike the Chilkoot trail with my boyfriend. It was an absolutely incredible experience that I recapped in a ridiculous amount of posts. Check em out: Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

5) What is your favorite race memory?

I think my favorite race memory is probably crossing the line of my first half ironman, Rev3 Florida. You never forget your first race of a distance, and this was pretty significant. It was a hot, hot day, and despite a disappointing half marathon, I still finished within 5 minutes of my goal time. I really enjoyed this distance- you can bet there will be more of it!
