Hello BTC Members!
My name is Wendy Kimpel and I am reaching out to you to say that I have accepted my nomination to run for the board. When I received the email, my first thought was holy cow! Did I just read this right? Needless to say, I am surprised and deeply humbled. It has meant so much in my journey to become a member of the BTC. The inspiration, support, and knowledge you have offered is priceless and it is important to me to pay it forward. Balancing a career and family, the wholehearted way the doors have been opened for them to be involved has meant more than I can put into words.
Over the years one question has been directed my way numerous times, “Why do I do this?” My response is simple,” I absolutely love everything about being a triathlete!” The challenges of training, proper nutrition, and of course racing are just fascinating to me! Maybe I am a bit of a fanatic, but I love to watch races, learn about new gadgets and training tips, read triathlon magazines, and talk to anyone that will listen about the being a triathlete and the BTC!
It has been an honor to receive this nomination. Should I be elected, I will undoubtedly bring passion and a diverse skill set in public speaking, fundraising, and management to the BTC in a way the benefits the club.
Looking forward to cheering you on and inspiring others to give a Tri a Try! Thank you.
