Tribesports User of the Week: Carolyn T

Carolyn T profileWhich Tribesports Challenge has been the toughest and which are you most proud of?

I'm still working on 365 miles in 365 days.  I will be thrilled when that challenge is complete.

One of the toughest  has been to go without chocolate for a week.  It took over a year, but I finally completed the challenge.  

How did you fair against the zombies in your Run For Your Lives race?

Run For Your Lives was a fantastic event.  My family were all good sports and ran along. One of my sons lost both of his running shoes in a mud pit. My entire family was eventually "infected".   Sprinting workouts are in order before next years race.

Will you be hitting the obstacle race scene again in 2014?

Definitely!  Its more fun to get muddy in a race than in a spa.

The 365 miles in 365 days running Challenge looks like it's going well - how will you celebrate the final miles?

The 365 miles has been my longest challenge, and I'm getting into the home stretch.  I'll celebrate with trip to a massage therapist. 

What's your big Challenge for 2014 going to be?

I'm looking to run my first half marathon.  

Will Santa be bringing you any sporting stash this Christmas?

One can only hope!  I've hinted to the family I'd like to get some Tribesports gear and a new hockey stick.

Give Hockey a TryHow did you first get into Ice Hockey and how's your season going?

I watched hockey on TV as a kid and liked the speed of the game. Last year, I was able to find a women's league about an hour from my home.  I played last summer and was signed up for the fall league and was again ready to hit the ice.  Then, out of nowhere, the floods in Colorado occurred.  I live in the mountains that was heavily hit and was stranded within my community for 10 days.  One of my first emails out was to my hockey team to let them know I wouldn't be able to skate for the fall season.  Once the roads were repaired, I was invited to sub into as many games as I wanted.  I can't wait for the January season to start!

Which Tribesports user makes your day?

Steve M is an amazing teammate who is always supportive.  Amber B, Te Aroha C and Crystal M were great during my chocolate meltdown and rant (I had a moment).

Murray S is very encouraging and will talk hockey with me.

Pronsias (Frank) M how fun it would be to hike with Pronsias!

Teresa D, Maria G, Stephen C and Eunice Y always have great challenges that I want to try.
