Hi I am Christine, I am originally from Belgium and speak French. I am a single Mom of an amazing kid that is getting ready for college and we leave in Charlotte NC. When it comes to world of triathlon I am definitely a “late bloomer” as I was 48 when I completed my first sprint tri and 49 for my first HIM. I fell in love with triathlons when I joined Tri It For Life in 2016 and return to TIFL every year to mentor incoming athletes. My favorite sport is running followed very closely by Biking. Even though I’m a triathlete I absolutely do not like swimming! However it does not stop me to dream and hope that someday I will find the courage to complete a full IM (hopefully by my 55 Birthday). This sport has given me the opportunity to become the best, most real version of myself and has brought some amazing friendships into my life! I am forever grateful to this sport.
