About the Author
Ms. Bruno was a team player in high school, enjoying field hockey, soccer, and basketball. After a distinctly
non-athletic college career and early adult life, she became interested in running and later in multisport events as a way
of controlling weight and sharing time with her husband, a former college football player and sportsmedicine
orthopaedic surgeon. After almost twenty years in the sport, she has completed eleven marathons, two
ultra-marathons, numerous road races, duathlons, and triathlons. She has been selected All American several years,
earned the silver and bronze medals in the World Championship short- and long-course duathlon and been on the
American team in the short-course triathlon in Australia and Cancun, and was ranked first American grand master
(over 55) duathlete in 2002. She finished fifth in her age group in the 1987 World Championship Hawaiian Ironman
Triathlon and sixth in 2002 and will compete on the American team in the World Championship short-course triathlon
in Madiera, Portugal, in 2004.
When her children were teenagers, the author went back to earn a masters degree in nursing because of her interest in
women's health and nutrition and worked as a nurse practitioner. She has written articles and spoken on panels about
osteoporosis, nutrition, and exercise and enjoys sharing her interests with other women.
The Brunos spend their time in Nashville, Tennessee, and Crested Butte, Colorado.
