Meet Jennifer

Welcome to See Jenn Tri!

I am Jennifer,  Mom of 3, and Grandma of 6!

Five of those amazing grandkids came in 5 years which just goes to show how seriously our daughters took my little “we are a fertile family talk!!!  Also as I update this 5 out of the 6 are teenagers and 4 are taller than me!  How dare they 🙂

Fun at the holidays!!

Most of my life I spent being an “athletic supporter”  : ) Translation: cheerleader, driver, snack and water provider for my children and husband.

At age 47 I became active out of desire to get healthy, get moving and also because as you will find out I truly believe

“It is never too late”

Much like the “Velveteen Rabbit” (great book) I am a bit worn around the edges because thankfully I am well-loved 🙂

 I will tell it like it is and be as “real” as I possibly can be about the successes and challenge of being an over 50 sprint triathlete, a Mom, grandma, wife and writer.   Speaking of honesty I will tell you right now I am not the best at any of this but I do tri ( pun intended).

Lately I have been doing more writing and less triathlons ( thanks pandemic) but gearing up to “tri” a triathlon again in 2024.  I am also delving into health writing as an adjunct to my 30 yr nursing career where I was priviledged to help welcome new babies into the world and support their parents on that heart filled adventure.

I give it a lot of heart to everything I do and have much fun along the way.

I am all about the fun, the challenge, the camaraderie and cheering for my fellow triathletes, writers, runners  cyclists, Moms and Grandmas.

Other loves include…

adventures (all kinds)





laughing with my family and friends

prayer and gratitude for each and every day

This quote that I adapted sums me up quite nicely:

“Life should not be a journey with the intention of arriving at the end, dressed nicely and every hair in place but rather to skid in sideways, race number flapping in the breeze, a big grin on your face, water bottle in one hand, chocolate in the other, endorphins pumping, tired yet victorious screaming “woohoo, did you see me tri”?

And finally…I would like to thank my first (and only) love, my husband Paul…who supports all my crazy ideas, and helped me find the “courage to start” this “tri” adventure.
