Triathlete.com: What does it mean to you to move on as a finalist in the contest?
Erin D.: It means more to me than I could put into words, but as a triathlete we are always proud of how hard we work, so it is so amazing to get credit for how our bodies look from all of that hard work.
Erin D.: Yes, I do! I was a swimsuit model during college and have been a fitness host and model for Home Shopping Network for the last 6 years!
Triathlete.com: What do you think you’ll spend your $100 from TYR on?
Erin D.: I really need some new tri shorts, or maybe a swimsuit.
Triathlete.com: What do you like to do for fun outside of the sport?
