Name: Stacy Taylor
Location: Fairfax, VA
Age Group: Female 50 - 54
About Me: I recently converted from just running (including marathons) to triathlons this summer. I did a short sprint a few years ago, but got bit by the bug this summer. I started with Eagleman and Lake Montclair in June, did Naylor's Beach in August and Lake Anna in September. I have already signed up for Columbia next spring, but am hesitant to sign up for Eagleman again considering the conditions last June.
What I do to pay the bills: Senior Analyst - Evolvent Technologies
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: I am single and have a 17 year old daugther who is very independent (and luckily responsible) so I have a lot of time to train.
I also have a German Shepherd and 2 cats.
Short term triathlon goals: Lake Anna Half Iron
Long term triathlon goals: Continue to ponder if I really am insane enough to try a full Ironman
Fantasy triathlon goals: Full Ironman
Three favorite albums: I like a lot of different music - U2, Led Zepplin (two of the best bands ever), most of the 80's, 90's rock (such as Alice in Chains).
I have no country music or Opera.
Favorite movie: When Harry Met Sally
Chick flick: The Notebook
Girl Power: Working Girl
Silly and made me laugh: Airplane!
Funny and new: 40 Year Old Virgin
Nostalgic geek favorites: The "first" Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back

Chocolate: Sometimes. Ice Cream is my downfall (Jamocha Almond Fudge) is the ultimate
For breakfast, I usually have: Fruit, yogurt, coffee and an occasional treat of cinnamon applesauce
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: I may put something in my crockpot such as a lean roast with lots of veggies, or I like a nice teriyaki chicken (get some protein and carbs).
My best triathlon advice is: Do Bricks in training! It will help your body get better accustomed to that often times painful bike/run transition and first few miles.
My best non-triathlon advice is: Never sacrifice your integrity.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I wasn't. I was in a delusional state and signed up for Eagleman. But I finished and that was my goal and I got hooked on Tris.
Everything I need to know I learned from: The Brady Bunch ( Mike Brady zen in particular)
My deepest, darkest secret is: I have to know you pretty well to go there.
