Off-Day ActivityFamily time. Usually playing outside with my son, doing whatever he wants to do. Many times a hike or some adventuring the likes of an 8 year olds imagination.

I found tri sports about 20 years ago. I competed in local races for few seasons before settling into running. I ran all different distances including 6 marathons. I began to have knee pain and decided to focus on cycling. This has become my true love. Road, MTB, DH…..I love them all.
I started racing XC this year. It has been a learning experience, but I have begun to find some room on the podium. Training and surrounding myself with like minded and supportive team mates has made all the difference.
So far in 2022 I have found the podium several times. I found the third step at the USAC Virginia Marathon Mountain Bike State Championship in my Cat and 1st in age group. I am leading the Virginia Mountain Bike Series and will win the overall title with atlas 4 1st place finishes and two races yet to come.
