I'm a life-long athlete- growing up a competitive swimmer and runner, now completing my second season as a triathlete! This year I completed my first ever Ironman in 11:11:44!! It was the experience of a lifetime and one that I will strive to complete and enjoy just as much as I did the first time!! I also completed 5 local triathlons and love supporting the smaller races! I qualified for Nationals in both sprint and Olympic but wasn’t able to attend. I finished my season off with a 70.3 and learned a lot during that piece as well and will strive to qualify for worlds in my next season! Triathlon has been such a light in my life, being a busy mom of four boys, and new teacher, I love having something that keeps me grounded and focused. My family is the most important thing to me. I strive to set a good example for my kids and others around me of living a healthy, active lifestyle! I also love to cook and bake- putting a healthy spin on recipes!
