Local Triathlete, Allysah Fox, a Senior at Virginia Tech, competed in the Luray Triathlon Hawksbill Double. This was her first time ever competing in a double triathlon but her second year participating in the Luray Triathlon. Last year she raced the Luray Sprint Triathlon as her first triathlon ever. We had a chance to ask her a few questions about herself and her experience with the Luray Triathlon.
Tell me about yourself.
I am a senior at Virginia Tech majoring in multimedia journalism and double minoring in business and professional and technical writing. I am the vice president of the Virginia Tech Triathlon Club, which is how I met my wonderful and athletic friends! During the school year I have an internship with Virginia Tech Magazine, and this summer I had the opportunity to work for Hawksbill Brewing Company – I love both of my jobs and my bosses! I grew up in Luray just a quarter mile past Lake Arrowhead, so I’ve been familiar with the race course long before the Luray Triathlon officially began. Truth be told, I was a couch potato growing up. But, my older sister convinced me to join the cross country team in high school, and since then I’ve been obsessed with the endorphins!
