PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A psychologist in Florida’s Panhandle will represent the Navy during the Armed Forces Triathlon in June.

The Pensacola News-Journal reports (https://on.pnj.com/1TSMb3i) that Lt. Courtney Pollman-Turner made the 2016 Navy team after being selected as an alternate last year.

Each triathlon team includes eight men and five women. They’ll compete June 18 in a 1,500-meter open-water swim, 40-kilometer bike race and 10-kilometer run in California.

Pollman-Turner says her daily training includes a pre-dawn swim and a bike ride or run at the end of the day. She does longer open-water swims on weekends.

Pollman-Turner says the training helps her find a work-life balance. She works at Pensacola Naval Hospital, where she counsels patients to explore their interests outside the military.
