I’m an adult-onset athlete, mama of three, and President & CEO of Adelson Research & Consulting. When pregnant with my second child, I consistently did strength training up until I was in labor with her, flipping and throwing tires during early labor and having her shortly after the workout (born at home). After she turned one, I joined Fleet Feet’s No Boundaries 5k program. That got me hooked on group running, so I joined the half marathon program. After that, I started running several half marathons a year, and in 2017 I completed a marathon. In 2019, while running a half marathon in my third trimester with my third baby, I decided I would become a triathlete before my baby turned 1 – even though I had only ridden my hybrid bike around the neighborhood with the kids in the trailer and had never ridden a road bike and had never swum laps. In January, I started swimming and biking, and Covid hit. I did a virtual sprint before my baby turned one. Then before she turned two I completed a virtual 70.3. She’s three now, and I’m preparing for my third in-person 70.3 in just under a year! I am an ambassador for Coeur, Ponya Bands, BOCO Gear, and Blue 70 and a member of Coeur’s The Collective Beat.
