As a woman in her late 50s, Kathy Phleger didn’t expect to be training and completing triathlons on a regular basis. She also didn’t expect to finish her first triathlon with a broken hand.
Nine days before the triathlon, she fell off her bike to prevent a collision with the cyclist in front of her. As a result, she landed on her hand and ended up in a soft cast. “I was heartbroken,” she said.
