Starting out as a young swimmer, Karen then played pretty much all sports in high school and college. As a veteran triathlete, Karen placed 2nd at Ironman Brazil in 2007 which got her a qualifying spot in Kona, her most honorable moment. She would love to soon qualify for the 70.3 Worlds and meet new people while traveling. She has also raced Ironman Austria which she felt was her most favorite race due to the beauty of the venue and the fantastic people. Karen sees herself as different and exceptional and never settles for just any gear when racing, she wants good looking comfortable gear and Active Angelz fits that requirement. This Canadian resident will be competing this year at Atlantic City Ironman, watch out for her!
