Embarrassed. That’s how Alejandra felt when at age 10, she didn’t know how to ride a bike. But when she looked around and saw other girls at the Ironhawk Juniors Tri Club, just like herself, learning how to pedal, she quickly gained self-confidence. Alejandra decided she wouldn’t let fear get in her way. She learned how to conquer those fears and completed her first triathlon last year.
To prepare for this year, Alejandra has already begun riding her bike every day after school to improve her skills. She can’t wait to see her coaches and friends.
