I've had a love for the water from an early age and been swimming since I was 3. Swam competitively through middle and high school. I played club water polo through college. Post college, a coworker got me into triathlons. The longest triathlon I have done was an Olympic distance. I enjoy running as well, both on road and trail. Running races are usually 5 to 15k distances, but I have tackled a handful of half marathons. My true passion lately has been open water swimming. The past year I've been training for a 10k and 10 miler open water swims. I just completed the 10k and am in love with open water swimming. I started a local group for water related outdoor activities when this passion really took off. Getting people out in nature and comfortable and safe in open water was my main goal for starting the group. I'd like to try to get into some swim-run races.
