About Me

Years ago, with my dad’s encouragement, I signed up for my first triathlon in an effort to get in shape as I was a bit on the heavy side. My dad had been racing in triathlons for a number of years, even being a Pro-Triathlete himself. Tri’s quickly became a passion that we both shared. We raced in several triathlons together enjoying the camaraderies it brought, the friendships I was able to build but also the love of competing against each other. It was after a long bike together that we decided that once I was out of school (College) and felt I might have a fighting chance, that I would battle my way to becoming a Pro-Triathlete. An Ironman comes in two distinct distances, a Half Ironman or Ironman 70.3 made up of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike, and a 13.1 mile run. Then there is a full ironman or Ironman 140.6 made up of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 run, all in order without breaks. Each athlete must complete the course in a given time or is to be disqualified. My goal is to become a Pro-Triathlete in the 70.3 distance first and in the near future prepare myself to jump to the 140.6 distance and eventually make it to the world championships in Kona, Hawaii.
