I'm a runner-turned Ironman triathlete-turned open water swimming lover. Naturally, as a long-time runner who got into triathlons, swimming was a necessary "evil" that I had to endure to get to the "fun" parts of the triathlon. 15 Ironman triathlons and multiple qualifications to the Ironman World Championships later, I realized that I had developed a real love for swim training and open water swimming. I'm excited to continue my Ironman goal of breaking 10 hours while getting into marathon open water swim races and SwimRun events!
