TRIATHLON | BOULDER, CO

Top Goal for 2016:

“My main goal this year to race strong while focusing on Ironman Kona 2016. I know I can do more on the Kona course and look forward to racing some amazing women in 2016.   It’s exciting to see so much talent on the women’s side and I’ll be ready.”

Triathlon has become an amazing part of Rinny’s life. She’s married to a triathlete and enjoys racing and training the mecca of tri, Boulder. However, like everyone in the endurance world, she struggles to balance training and family time, and she sometimes need a push out the door for a training session.

Rinny is constantly striving to get the best she can out of her racing, and that goal helps keep her motivated and on the move. She enjoy ice cream and red wine shared with friends. Rinny grew up on a farm with a large family, which meant that at a young age she was always running to catch up with her siblings. But she never imagined running (and swimming and biking) would turn into her job.
