I am a childhood swimmer and at the time I was the youngest ever swim team member at my local YMCA at age 5. I've lifeguarded and taught swim lessons (in 3 states) and always loved to play mermaid. When I went to Disney my parents say I complained the whole time saying I just wanted to go back to the pool.
In 2016 I started running to lose weight, and at my local run club/team one of the women was ramping up to do an Olympic Triathlon and was talking to a few of us over beers. Someone else said they always wanted to do them and she said he could probably manage it- the swim is the hardest part. While I hadn't swam laps in nearly 15 years at that point, I figured why not. So in 2019 I bought a bike and started training. I completed 2 sprints the same year and was scheduled for an Olympic and IM Maine 70.3 in 2020 but those were pushed back to 2021 so I completed the Lake Sunapee Olympic instead, completing the other olympic and my 70.3 this year in 2021.
For 2022 I will be racing the Escape from Alcatraz Tri, as well as take part in the Kingdom Games (in VT) for my first 10k swim and several Olympic Tris.
