I started distance running about six years ago as I was looking for a healthy stress reliever from my daily grind. I purchased a pair of running sneakers, downloaded a free training plan, and never looked back. In these six years I completed 7 half-marathons, numerous 8k and 5k road races and 4 marathons. My custom Infinit blend helped me jump from a painful 4:23, where I was under fueled, to 4:05 between marathons 1 and 3.

A DNF in my 5th marathon in March 2022, due to injury, forced me to change my training plan. I'm rebuilding stronger and getting faster by incorporating biking and swimming too. My focus on the second half of 2022 was rebuilding; ending with my triathlon debut at CLASH Daytona in December 2022!

2023 is another odd year for me. I'm focusing on speed work with 5k up 10k running races. I'm competing in my first pool swim sprint tri in April then focusing on a lot time swimming in local rivers and lakes to overcome my fear of murky water. Read my Daytona Sprint recap to learn all about my 800m heads up swim...sore shoulders for days, ha! December 2023 is my Clash Daytona Sprint revenge on Lake Lloyd :-)!
