About Me

Lynne Tapper

I am a lifelong endurance athlete with the dual goal of training and racing until my bones turn to dust and sharing that passion with as many people as possible.

This is the bike transition bag. You grab it after the swim and head to an enclosed area (gender-specific) to change for the bike leg.

This is my bike’s resting place for the night. Computer is covered, and it is turned OFF.

Someone gave me advice to put some noticeable tape on my bag so I could recognize it quickly. The kids’ duct tape collection came in super handy. 😉

I have this space on my bike where I usually put my phone. No phones on race day. So Leland and the kids put together a list of songs to keep me occupied during the bike portion. Everything is Awesome!

Posing in front of the “famous” MDot. Very cool.

I couldn’t decide what to eat for breakfast the day before race day, so I ordered EVERYTHING!

Do you recognize the tape? This is my running transition bag.
