Bio: I stopped counting triathlons when I had completed 40, and I have also have raced adventure races, off-road duathlons, cycling time trials, and recently started pursuing ultra gravel bike racing. I survived being completely run over by a pickup while cycling in 2012. I am a USAT level 1, USAC level 3, TrainingPeaks level 2 and Ironman Certified coach. I kept running into some of the Tri Racers and they encouraged me to train with them. It’s hard to explain how that turned into a lifestyle, but I don’t remember what is was like to not jump out of bed and train every morning.

Career Highlight: Sub 11 hour Ironman in 2013. This was 16 months after being run over by a pickup in 2012. DMOS rebuilt my joints with surgeries and a lot physical therapy, and my fitness was rebuilt with a lot of training… the training and racing helped me feel more whole again.

Why I Tri: Triathlon is a constructive outlet for my competitive nature. It has a great community, helps to keep me fit, and I find the strategy… both from a training and racing perspective… very interesting.
