Brenda J. Barrera was often told to “Go outside and play!” while growing up in Michigan. Play meant to grab a bucket of tennis balls, a transistor radio, and bike to the college courts to practice her forehand and backhand. It also meant twirling her baton in the backyard to Motown hits. Her earliest sports memory is riding on the back of her brother’s bike to swim practice at an outdoor pool, and yes, the water was fuh-REE-zing. In high school, she was co-captain of the swim team her senior year and during college discovered a passion for running, so it was a natural fit to become a triathlete. She says it’s fun to be competitive, but it’s equally important always to have fun.
