My Story to 2022 Zone 3 USA Triathlon Youth and Junior Nationals by Juliette Soos

It was fun! I enjoyed spending time with my friends and my team. I love that we all had the opportunity to be part of something new and make history. I am very proud of my teammates, all the athletes, and myself for working really hard and pushing ourselves to do our best. I really appreciate Coach Hector, Coach Jeff, my partner, Maryory, and everyone that has supported me each day during training , like my friends at CFL Tri Team, TriPeak, Special Olympics, and my family. Crossing that finish line, knowing that I pushed myself to the limit through the rain was incredible! It was the greatest experience of my life! I can’t wait to do it again!
