She has an Undergraduate Degree in Fine Arts with a focus in photography. She continues to find ways to integrate her creative side for the arts with her passion for fitness and wellness. Her days outside of work are spent doing anything from swimming, biking, running, skiing, and climbing mountains. But don’t be surprised to see her suddenly decide to paddle thirty miles on a standup paddle board, or try something completely new like fly fishing. She loves anything that works the endurance engine, puts her bodies strength to the test while being out in the Adirondack elements. You will most likely find her out on a 50-mile bike ride during the summer months going up through Cascade Pass instead of down, because biking the Ironman Course backwards through the Adirondacks just happens to be one of her favorite things to do, or you can find her out skiing during the winter months before the sun is up to catch the sunrise at the top of a mountain peak. Traci races Ironman 70.3’s and Ironman 140.6’s three of which took place in Lake Placid. The Adirondacks is the perfect playground, that she and her coach love to integrate it into her triathlon training year-round. She also has a big goofy dog named Maggi that she shares a large portion of her Adirondack experiences with. Keep up with Traci and you will be sure to experience all the unique ways to be active in the Adirondacks.
