Jan did her first tri in the fall of 2006. Over the last 7 years, she has raced various distances from sprints to Ironman along with some relays. She enjoys doing relays with her children. She's been involved with the NextGen program since its inception. She enjoys working with the NextGen program because it is very rewarding to watch the kids cross the finish line and see the pride in their accomplishment. It doesn't matter whether they are racing a kids' specific race or teaming up with parents, siblings or teammates to conquer a sprint tri, each race is an opportunity to achieve goals and have fun!
