This is 50 with Angie Jackson

In episode 101, Jill and Chris talk with Angie Jackson about learning to swim and becoming at triathlete at age 50.

Five years ago, Angie decided to become a runner and then a triathlete. She tells us how she’s worked hard to learn to swim, bike, and run.

When she started her swim lessons again, Angie hired a triathlon Coach Morgon Latimore and successfully trained for and completed a Sprint, Olympic, and Half Distance Triathlon.

Angie Jackson has three adult children, and she is Mimi to her two grandchildren. Angie is a nurse and works long hours, but manages to fit in the training needed to race triathlons!

She is originally from Philadelphia and now lives in North Carolina. There are a lot of fun races that she will be participating in from now until then. Currently she is in training for my first full distance triathlon that will take place on Sept 17, 2022 in Maryland.

Some of them she plans to do alone, others she will do with her grandchildren.

Angie wants women to know we can change the narrative of what a certain age "looks or acts like." Everything Angie is doing now: swimming, cycling running, yoga, strength training, and hula hooping...this is 50!
