My name is Carson Padilla and I race with the Fury Tri Team out of Katy, TX. I started doing tri's 5 years ago, my PE coach, Coach O started a team at my school and I have been hooked since. My tri goal is to someday do Kona, the distances are long, but hopefully starting at a young age will help me down the road. I also swim and my favorite classes in school are science and math.
Currently I am raising money through R2R to help send a student to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. After attending last summer, the experience was so much fun I would like someone else to experience the same joys I had.
When I grow up I hope to become a neurologist so that I can help people, and after attending Space Camp, I am adding astronaut to my list.
