What inspired you to do triathlons? I feel most alive when I am in the thick of a triathlon. I love the community and camaraderie while we are on the race course. It is a blessing to compete and I plan to race until I am not physically able.

How did you start doing triathlons? Growing up I watched Kona with my family. I always thought… wow, I would love to do that one day. Flash forward about 25 years and I was buying myself a bike, and took a swim lesson after I signed up for a sprint triathlon. Incredibly terrified… I jumped right in.

When was your first triathlon? 2012

What is your strength in a race? I enjoy every moment.

What is your weakness in a race? I talk too much at the aid stations, and also the swim.

Favorite Race: My next race :)
