Never Give Up.
Never stop pushing/working and giving it your all until you’ve crossed the finish line.
Began running 5k’s and 10k’s when I was 14, ran high school cross country and “tri-ed” a triathlon when I was a sophmore in high school. Got hooked and raced triathlons in the summer as cross training for cross country and track at the University of Cincinnati. I raced duathlons as a pro for a few years and love to race just about any kind of race that uses my body from Xterra races, adventure races like Primal Quest, to other challenging sports like snowshoe racing, skate skiing, and ultra running. I have always been intrigued by Ironman Hawaii and qualifying for Kona has become my goal (maybe obsession is more accurate). I’ve been to the Duathlon World Championships 5 times, twice as a pro and been All-American multiple times in duathlon and triathlon. I have been racing for over 27 years and I obviously love it and love to race (sometimes maybe too much).
