About Me

I started running in 2011 at age 39. I ran my first RNR half marathon and I fell in love with the "finish line" feels! Since I still run the same half marathon every year and have done many 13.1's. At 45, I decided it was time for a new challenge so I took up swimming. I also bought a bike after not being on one for over 20 years and signed up for my first Olympic triathlon. I have found my true love- triathlon! Since then I have completed 2 sprints, 4 Olympics, 2 Half Ironman and 1 full Ironman distance. My favorite of all three sports >> cycling!!!
My favorite quote: "Strength doesn't come from what you can do.. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't."
My mantra: "Keep moving forward!"
