Bucket List RaceFinish a 2nd sanctioned 1/2 Ironman. And compete in two swimrun events in the same calendar year.

I am a substitute teacher for the Tahoma School District in the state of Washington. I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2001 and fell in love with the many outdoor activities that happen year-round. My first triathlon experience occurred in 2015 when I completed the bike section for one triathlon and the run section for another. It was at this time that an ich started for me to complete a ½ Ironman. With that, I began to fly solo on the triathlons in 2019, completing an Olympic, another Olympic relay race, and a long course race. In 2020, my beloved wife and I became founding members of the Blueseventy team. Unfortunately, the dastardly pandemic occurred in 2020 and spring of 2021, so my racing was put on hold. However, the itch was not to be trifled with, and so as soon as the pandemic quite laying havoc everywhere I completed my first ½ Ironman in Salem, OR. This would not have been possible without the support of the Blueseventy community (and my daughter). It was also at this time that I found and fell in love with Swimrun racing. It is my hope to continue to compete in local triathlons and swim race adventures.
