Cat 2 Road, Cat 3 Cyclocross, Cat 3 Mtn, Triathlete
I am a stay at home mom with 4 children. After having 4 children and a running – induced injury, I bought a bike and joined the local bike club. Soon afterwards I was able to keep up with the fast group and I was encouraged to race. I won the TN State Series Championship my first year of racing. I really enjoyed it and realized I had some natural talent.

I enjoy the camaraderie and competitive spirit of being on a team . Team WE is a perfect fit for my multisport lifestyle. I love being a mentor to others and my kids think I am cool and are proud of me. It is never too late to pursue your dreams.

I am a Professor of Music specializing in classical voice and opera theatre at the undergraduate and graduate level at Belmont University here in Nashville. I have amazing students who actually think it’s pretty cool that I like to ride/race a bike in my spare time!

I began enjoying the hobby of endurance sports a few years ago when running 5ks, 10ks, and half-marathons. My favorite half-marathon experiences were those that involved fund raising for Big Brother Big Sister of Middle TN and for the St. Jude Half. The team effort and coach support for some of these efforts led me to explore the world of triathlon where I soon discovered not only a love for competing and community comradery, but that I also loved the bike! I learn daily from the fantastic cyclists in Nashville and am grateful for every opportunity and friendship. Juggling work/life balance has proven slightly more challenging this year, but I hope to enjoy racing with my teammates in the mid to late 2016 season.

Carrie ROMER

Multi Sport Athlete

I have a B.S. in Genetics and Biotechnology and a M.S. in Biology and work in a Research and Development laboratory at Vanderbilt University. I have always loved the water and also ran from a young age due to my mother’s interest in running races. It seemed logical to add in the bike and try a triathlon once I moved to Nashville. Due to a running injury, I began spending more time on the bike. I am happy that I bumped into and developed friendships with Coach Emma and my teammates who helped me build my cycling skills. Now that my foot is better, I have goals centered on my interest in off-road events. This will be my first year racing in trail running, off-road triathlon, and open water swimming.
I have had the opportunity to be on many sports teams throughout the years, ranging from swimming to rugby. I enjoy the camaraderie on Team WE and training with encouraging women who want to see each other excel.

Martha LOWE

Category 3 road racer

I began cycling for triathlon and discovered I like cycling best of the three sports. Cycling is a family sport for me. My husband and my 8 yr old son both love cycling also. I have ridden a total of 8,500 miles year to date and ride an average of 200 miles weekly. I am a full time Occupational Therapy Assistant and am challenged to balance work, family, and training.

My goal for 2018 is to begin the season fitter than I’ve ever been and see what I can achieve. Also to have an injury free season! I am super excited to be racing with the amazing women on Team WE. I expect a successful season for the entire team!
