Late last week, I received an email from Robyn, a PR spokesperson for Jen Perez, a professional triathlete and member of Team EAS. She asked me if I’d be interested in doing a feature piece for the blog, since Jen is also a college student trying to balance healthy living with school and training. How could I not say yes?!
I will be emailing Robyn later this week with my questions, but also wanted to give you, the reader, an opportunity to chime in and ask Jen some questions of your own! So, put on your thinking caps and leave a comment on this post with your question. I know it’s short notice, but if you can, try to think of one before Wednesday night at 8:00 pm CST.
Here’s a brief bio on Jen Perez:
Jen Perez is a professional triathlete and member of Team EAS. Perez turned professional in 2005 and has received various distinctions including All-American honors in triathlon in 2004 (Female 18-19). She also earned Honorable Mention Junior Dualthlete of the Year in 2002, 2003 and 2004 and is a three-time Team USA Junior Elite Member. Perez can currently be seen in the national TV spot for EAS with Philadelphia Phillies’ Chase Utley and Seattle Seahawks’ Matt Hasselbeck. (For fun outtakes, see here: Bloopers).
I’m really looking forward to this interview. I think it would be amazing to compete in a triathlon someday, and the fact that Jen (great name, by the way!) is doing it as a college student is really inspirational. Please leave a comment so that this interview can be interesting for you, too!
I am in the midst of studying for my final, so I have to keep this post short. But I couldn’t leave without saying a huge THANK YOU to my amazing bloggie and real-life friend Melissa, who sent me the sweetest and most thoughtful card!
She knew these next few weeks were going to be insane for me, and she wanted to ease the pain 😉
I was totally not expecting a treat to P.F. Chang’s! I love that restaurant! Thank you so much, Melissa. You are truly amazing and I am so grateful. If you’ve never read this girl’s blog, you must! She just moved to Florida to pursue her dream job and is doing some very cool stuff!
I leave you all now with a preview of what’s to come:
H-U-M-B-E-C-U-E Now it’s back to studying! I can’t wait to catch up on your blogs tomorrow because 1) I love reading them and 2) It means I’m one step closer to spring break! For now, just remember to leave a comment on this post if you have a question for Jen Perez!!
