HEALTHY LIVING 2008 -- 20s profile: Karen King
Karen King, 28.

Karen King What is the biggest challenge of staying healthy at your age? "It's balance, because whether you're in college, just starting a new job or starting a family there is a lot to balance. There are also a lot of temptations to eat out or go out." What is your biggest accomplishment? "Just starting triathlon. I started two years ago and now I race up to Olympic distance and Xterra races." What are your goals? "I want to do at least a half Ironman this year. For Xterra, my goal is to qualify for Nationals." What is your motivation to stay healthy and active? "I think once you get to a certain point you almost get addicted to it." Do you have any heroes? "I look up to my mom."
