an image Sharon Willmon was born in Chattanooga,Tennessee and traveled much of her childhood with a military family. She has been in Texas since 1982, where she graduated from South Grand Prairie High School. At the young age of 18, she met her soul mate, John, and they were married in 1985. They have been blessed with 2 children, Stephanie, 24, and Kyle, 21. Sharon became a flight attendant in 2000 and the family have enjoyed traveling together, especially to warm climates. One of their favorite vacation spots is Cancun, Mexico and Stephanie was actually married there last June.

Sharon began competing in races in 2004. Her first marathon was the Dallas White Rock Marathon in 2005, where she surprisingly placed first in the Athena division. Since then she has run one other full marathon at the Rock n Roll Phoenix in 2011.

Because of a back injury, Sharon decided to start biking and then she followed John in competing in triathlons in 2007. John and Sharon enjoy training together and traveling to races. Their daughter, Stephanie, and son-in-law, Stephen, also enjoy competing in runs and triathlons. Sharon has a goal of doing a race (any distance, run, tri or bike) in every state in the U.S. She is currently trying to knock out 3 states a year in an effort to achieve this goal.

Sharon is very excited to join Team Cambridge in 2012 and build friendships with fellow triathletes. Her other goal is to have fun, stay healthy and keep active for as long as possible.
