Vanessa Homyak is a force you really shouldn't mess with! She will more than likely out run, bike and/or swim you at any given time. I know I am a busy gurl but this woman is always "on the move" when it comes to her training regime. She is NO JOKE! I met Vanessa through a GOTRIBAL event 3 years ago. She is one of the kindest people I have met here in San Diego and has always been a great support! If you decide to follow her on FACEBOOK or in person, just be ready to watch her jump from one side of town to the other and it will be hard to keep up with her when it comes to any multi-sporting event. Vanessa will not only motivate you to put one foot in front of the other, she will push you to believe that you can do anything, any time and any where! Be pushed by Vanessa's story!
I got into triathlons through my friend Carmen, who thought it would be fun to use Triathlons as "cross training" for our upcoming Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk. We started riding from her home to work about 20 miles a day. I signed up for Spring Sprint event in 2009 and have been hooked ever since! I am no stranger to sports. In high school I was very active. I played JV football as a defensive lineman (yes, the boys team), soccer and track. After high school I didn't do a lot of sports other than an occasional 5K Charity Run.
