Hello Team Infinit!
My name is Amy Jenkins and I have been competing in triathlon for just a short 8 months! I have completed an Olympic, half Ironman, and began two full Ironman’s. I made it a whole 123.4 miles in Maryland but ran out of time. But that’s not stopping me!
Almost 4 years ago I was an unhealthy and overweight smoker who smoked over a pack a day. Being a police officer I knew my lack of fitness and health could cost me my life! I lacked self confidence, motivation, positivity, and was just in a really bad place. I knew my life needed to change quick! Well I quit smoking cold turkey and joined a gym. A couple years later, I witnessed my first Ironman in Madison and said ‘I’m going to do that one day!’ and so my triathlon journey began.
I immediately fell in love with the endurance community and the discipline and positivity that comes along with it. Sure my dnf’s are disappointing and heart breaking, but I don’t give up that easy. I will earn my iron one day! I have truly fallen in love with Triathlon. So where am I now? I’m pumped for myself. I’ve come so far in 8 months. At this time last year, I didn’t even own a bike. Almost 4 years ago I was smoking over a pack of cigarettes a day. I just keep thinking of how far I’ll go between now and next season!
During the beginning of my tri journey I was suffering from some bad GI issues during training. I heard about Infinit and it was a game changer for me! I would be honored to be part of the team of the brand that I believe in so much! I have a pretty busy race schedule next year in hopes of finally earning my IRON finish in MADISON! I would be even more honored to cross that finish line in a team Infinit kit!
