|Bucket List Race||Ironman World Championship|
Hi! My name is Abby Ammerman and I have been a competitive swimmer since I was 5 years old. I started on a summer league team and graduated to club at age 8. I got a scholarship to swim in College and finished 4 years at Ohio University. Since graduation I could not get rid of the competitive bug so I started running and doing triathlons. My first triathlon was in 2003 and while I have taken certain years off I have stayed competitive in running, and triathlon ever since. My husband is military and while he is deployed I like to throw myself into Full Ironman training. He has been gone this year and I just raced IM Chattanooga and earned my Kona spot for 2020. I am so excited to go and race KONA! I have two daughters (11, and 8) who are so supportive and who helped me to start the inaugural "Cool Kids Running Club" during the summer. I also coach two female athletes in triathlon. I have a full time job working in health and wellness/pharmacy for a large retail organization. My strengths are maintaining a Positive Mental attitude, my work ethic, and time management!
