Jennifer Edwards, the Founder of Tri Girls Rise, never saw herself as an athlete until she took a chance with triathlons later in life.
From almost zero fitness, Jennifer decided she wanted to tackle triathlons at the age of 26. Although she never identified as an athlete in her life, she thought: I can do this if I try. She explains how getting into triathlons completely changed her perspective and inspired her to encourage others like her to see themselves as an athlete at any age or ability.
Jennifer talks about how feeling accomplished has taken on new meaning for her, that success comes from liking yourself and what you do—even if you’re not the best at it. And she wants you to like who you are as a person and try things that scare you.
