Returning member from 2018. I have been racing triathlons since high school. I podiumed in my first race and have been hooked ever since! My first Ironman began as a dare between friends when I was 19 and I'm now a 14x Ironman finisher. I had a horrible leg injury in 2005 that resulted in a spiral fracture in my tibia and fibia as well as damaging tendon tears in my ankle. Doctor's told me that I wouldn't run again, but I was bound and determined to prove them different. I may not have the speed that I did when I was younger, but I'm competing at a good level and put down my 2nd fastest Ironman in Maryland a year ago ago with a time of 10:45. I've taken a little bit of time off of racing recently to begin building a family, but am hopeful to get back at it in 2023.
