We chatted with Cara to learn more about the personality behind the beauty:
Triathlete.com: How long have you been competing in triathlons?
Cara: I have been doing triathlons off and on for about 11 years. I took a few years off because I moved to Spain and New Zealand. The very first races I did, I would just do the swim and would watch the rest of the race because I didn’t think I could do the bike/run. I come from a competitive swimming background, I was New England Champion in the 100 meter breastroke and 200 IM for 4 years in high school and college.
Triathlete.com: What is your proudest accomplishment in the sport?
Cara: Last year I won my age group at the New England Regional Championships. I also really enjoy bringing others into the sport since it is such a passion of mine.
Triathlete.com: What does it mean to you to move on as a finalist in the contest?
Cara: It means a great deal to me to move onto the finals. Triathlon is such a huge part of my life, and I work very hard to stay fit and competitive in my age group. It is an honor to be included with all these other athletic ladies!
Triathlete.com: Do you have a background in modeling?
Triathlete.com: What do you think you’ll spend your $100 from TYR on?
Cara: A triathlon race bag and a swim suit.
Triathlete.com: What do you like to do for fun outside of the sport?
Cara: I am a pharmacist, which I enjoy, and I love to do other sports in the offseason. I take a full five months off from swim/bike/run. I like to ski, snowboard, read and spend time with family.
