    CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge

    Fit Nation 2013

    My name is Catherine Coleman-Harris and I would love to be considered for the CNN Fit Nation 2013 Triathlon Challenge. I have always been extremely interested in triathlons and participating in one would be a dream come true!!!
    I am a 48 year old mother of three from Fayetteville, GA. My family and I moved here from the Seattle area about 15 months ago.
    I learned about the CNN Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge after finding the Bert Show on the radio. Jeff from the Bert Show has been so fun to listen to over the past year. Just through listening to him describe his experience has been very inspiring. The impact of the CNN Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge on his life definitely comes through in his attitude and stories he shares on the radio. I think the most impacting story that he told was what he had learned about himself and others after he finished the race in September. He explained that he learned to always keep moving forward, always be the calmest person in a chaotic situation, enjoy everything and to help others. If I could bring the inspiration to others that he has brought to me by being a participant in the CNN Fit Nation Challenge that would be worth all the hard work that I know it will take to prepare for such a challenge! I would welcome all the training and sore muscles!
    I also would like to be apart of the challenge to make a change in my life. I would like to reset my life before I turn 50! I need to take control of my health, nutrition and fitness. I have a lot to be healthy and alive for and I would like be the best example to my husband and children. I know being apart of the CNN Fit Nation Challenge would allow me the opportunity to learn about health, nutrition and fitness from the best!
    I want to let you know that if selected for the 2013 team I would work extremely hard to prepare both physically and mentally. An opportunity like this does not come along often and I would use such an opportunity not to only better myself and health but to inspire and help others too!
    Thank you so very much for considering me!
