Hello! I have been a distance runner for over a decade now, both on roads and trails.. I love competing and have managed to race 20+ times every year for the last several years. A couple years ago I added cycling to my training and have been racking up the miles and faring pretty well in what avenues I have to compare myself to other cyclists (namely Strava, mainly). I added swimming to my regime as well last summer with the end desire of competing in different Ironman races and other, more local triathlons, though Covid greatly depleted any competitions near me for a while. My goal is to continue training and hopefully compete in a multitude of races and triathlons in 2023! Namely, I competed in my first 1/2 Ironman this past summer and was rather disappointed. Though the bike portion only took about 2.5 hours and the run took about 1 hour and 40, the swim portion took me 1 hour and 5 minutes--very close to the DNF time. My overall time was right around 5:30. I know that I can do better than that, and would like to break 5 hours this coming year if I get the free time.
While competing solo is alright, I thoroughly enjoy spreading the love of exercise in my area and working with others; In college I headed a fundraiser for a local cross country team that couldn't afford many training accessories--I managed to get them dozens of shorts, shirts, socks, water bottles, etc. I was an assistant cross country coach and head track coach for my home high school. I organized a voluntary summer training program for high schoolers and college athletes, and I have helped organize group rides and runs this past summer to keep friends and community members motivated. I love competing, but I also love encouraging and cheering people on.
For work now, I am part of a labor union, mainly focused on helping to install and upgrade sources of energy and improve the infrastructure of local schools and roadways. To be succinct, I work in construction. I am somewhat of an oddity in this field because of my appreciation for running, biking and swimming, but I can't complain a bit because my work has allowed me to travel and run all over the United States.
