Name: Jennifer Burg
Nickname: Jen, Jenni
Location: Manassas, VA
Age Group: Female 45 - 49
About Me: I am mom of twin girls, two teenagers and an extremely spoiled dog. Hmmm that about covers it. Seriously, I began running in my early twenties as a stress relief in Grad School. It became a healthy addiction I would say. Exercise has always been a key to my sanity and a subset of my spirituality. The stress in my life last year led me to the pavement and one too many marathons. Rebounding from an injury, my physical therapist had me cross train. One foot in the pool and I knew my fate; I was bound to be a triathlete. I absolutely stink on the bike though. Give me some time and a some coaching...I'll be on my way.
What I do to pay the bills: George Mason University
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: My husband, JC, (son) West, (daughter)Tate and twin 6 year old daughters, Maddy and Kaylee, my first born chocolate lab named Lavar. For those skin fans, I got VarVar the year we signed Arrington.
Short term triathlon goals: To continue triathlon for a long long time
Long term triathlon goals: One Ironman under my belt.....now to do another one
Fantasy triathlon goals: KONA!
Three favorite albums: The musician in me comes out.
1) Natty Dread by The Charlie Hunter Quartet
(really cool jazz version of reggae)
2) La Boheme by Puccini
3) John Mayer Continuum (wow)
Pretty much every kind of music and genre.
Favorite book: The chicklit reader in me says Jemima J by Jane Green or Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner. Classics....has to be Tolstoy and on the lighter side Austen.
Favorite movie: When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, The original Dirty Dancing...okay...I have issues.
I also enjoy historical (sort of) movies like Brave Heart, 300, Gladiator, Gettysburg, Saving Private Ryan etc...
Chocolate: But of course!
Garlic: Only if my dinner companions join in...too risky otherwise.
Blue Cheese: a little goes a long way
For breakfast, I usually have: This is where it goes down hill ...I think about it. Seriously...not good! I just run out of time.
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: To be honest, I am so paranoid about GI issues, I end up guilting myself into the most bland meal ever. If I am not training for a specific event, I'll enjoy a nice meal with a really really good glass of Cabernet. If I am really throwing caution to the wind.. Rio Grande for chips/salsa.
My best triathlon advice is: Brick workouts are priceless. Always be comfortable in yor race attire. It is too long of a day thinking about what your butt looks like. Been there and done that! Seriously!
My best non-triathlon advice is: Live life to the fullest and never be afraid to try. Life is too short to have "What if's"! seriously!!! Oh...and never ever let a day go by without thanking someone for something.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I'll just see if I like it. What was I thinking!!
Everything I need to know I learned from: Mom and Dad
My deepest, darkest secret is: hmmmmm..wouldn't you like to know!
