Hi! I am an endurance athlete, which is still odd to type, but that's what this crazy adventure as turned into thus far. I started out by running a few years back, the goal was a marathon, that escalated pretty quickly when I learned about ultras and have since done a few 100 mile races. One thing lead to another and now I'm in the tri world, I actually just (completed, definitely not competed) in my first Ironman event. I love the idea of a challenge, of pushing myself mentally and physically and seeing how much I can achieve. Anything that is new or exciting or different has my name on it. Stepping out of my comfort zone has taught me so much about myself and life in general and I love the community behind it all. I have met so many wonderful people that have changed my life forever since I started getting involved in this community, I love having the influence to change others as well. On top of my own personal goals and dreams, I do coach middle school track and field and XC at a nearby school and love sheading some running wisdom and knowledge on these group of kids, spreading the love and joy of running is just an amazing feeling.
