Lovel ready for N.Y. Triathlon and beyond

From the Rome News-Tribune

With exactly one month before 58-year-old Roman and first-time triathloner Nina Lovel tackles the New York City Triathlon as part of the CNN FitNation Challenge, all is as it should be.

Lovel said Sunday she feels fit, confident and had just spent the morning bragging to a cycling partner about the scenery she gets to enjoy at Berry College and around Floyd County.

Not that it’s been too easy.

“It is going very well. It’s been intensive for, how long has it been, five months. It’s been intense, but it’s been fun,” said Lovel.

Sunday marked the beginning of her final month of training before the big event and already she’s pedaled well past the 25 miles of the cycling portion, ran the 6.2 miles of the running portion and is preparing to knock out a full mile of swimming in one of Rome’s three rivers soon.

Not too bad for a research and information coordinator at Georgia Northwestern Technical College who was until a year ago a self-described “chubby little book worm.”

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
