an image Hilary Graham was born and raised in Nacogdoches, Texas, where she graduated from Nacogdoches High School and attended Stephen F. Austin State University. She now has a career in real estate and works as a lease analyst Palo Petroleum. She and her husband, who is also a triathlete, reside by White Rock Lake with their two bulldogs, Marley and Lilly. When Hilary is not working or training, you can find her gardening, behind a camera, cooking, working on home improvements, spending time with friends and family and traveling.

This will be Hilary’s fifth year in Triathlon. Her triathlon background began when her husband, then boyfriend, convinced her to do Rogue Women’s Tri in Austin where she took 19th place in her age group. Knowing she could do much better, she signed up for CapTex Sprint where she took 3rd in her age group and 5th overall for the ladies. That was when she caught the bug and has done numerous sprint triathlons and remains to place within the top five of her age group and won the IRP Women’s Triathlon in 2010. In April of 2011, she completed her first IM 70.3 in New Orleans and will also race Longhorn 70.3 October of 2011. Her goals for the 2012 season are to race Olympic and 70.3 distances and to qualify for the 70.3 World Championship.

Hilary is thrilled to be a part of, and racing with, Team Cambridge!
