Former pro triathlete and multiple IM/IM 70.3 champion Beth McKenzie may be 42 years old, but that doesn’t mean she’s taking it easy or slowing down. At the California International Marathon, she ran a personal best of 2:37:47. We easily can say that is very impressive.

“There are so many other things that could be the headline for this caption. So many *almosts* and *if onlys*, but the reality is that when I zoom out even a tiny bit, I only see 42-year old me, still chasing big dreams and coming pretty darn close to accomplishing them.”

“Thank you to all who come along for the ride. I feel like I’m always teetering between wanting to put out only positive energy before a race (more for me than you) and ‘telling it like it is’ and I appreciate your patience.”
