Favorite Race: My favorite is the race that I almost DNF’d. Ironman Canada, 8500 feet of climbing on a 100 degree day. The course is absolutely breathtaking and yet soul-crushing, perfect for an Ironman! I hope to return someday on a day when we don’t get baked in an oven.

Ironman Santa Rosa and Ironman Arizona. I hope to fit in a sprint here and there and maybe a local 70.3
