When the TriWivesClub began in 2013, we were three – Dana, Jodi, and Sherry – wives of triathletes. However, we became two when Jodi had to step back earlier this year due to her full-time job! While she is still a huge part of hearts and always will be and still contributes when she can, Dana and I have had to carry on ourselves.
For those not as familiar with this sport, it involves 3 disciplines –swimming, biking, and running; a variety of distances from Sprints to a full Ironman; and in-seasons and off-seasons. Had it not been for our desperation to find enough activities to occupy a 15 hour race day (that had its beginning at 4 AM mind you), our friendship never would have flourished. Part of what kept us occupied included sharing stories about our guys. We soon realized we had so many and couldn’t possibly be alone. While we only see each other a few times a year, we keep in touch and are supportive in times of need.
While our experiences focus on being wives of triathletes, this site is meant to be all-inclusive to any partner of a triathlete. It could even be translated to most any other sport. We’re sure the partner of a baseball player or golfer will easily find solace with us. We hope you join us on our journey as we take you behind the scenes of living with a triathlete. We have a wealth of information to pass on for managing this lifestyle and will let you in on how we keep our sanity and sense of humor. We promise it will be fun…….
