I am a certified triathlon coach, age group triathlete, and mom. Four years ago I discovered triathlons and instantly fell in love. Triathlon gave me a place I could set and achieve MY goals. It is a time where I can push myself and see what I can do when shit gets real. Through triathlon, I found myself again my voice, drive, and desire to push my limits. All the pieces lost in motherhood came out in the sport. Over the last four years, I’ve trained and competed in multiple sprint, olympic, 70.3 and full distance triathlons. I made 2018 and 2019 USAT All American, placed in the top 10 age group seven times and qualified for the 2020/2021 Ironman 70.3 World Championships. As much as I love the competitive aspects of endurance sports, it goes beyond that for me. I love pushing my fitness and myself to new levels. The mental challenge is as fulfilling as the physical ones. I love running up and down the Grand Canyon, climbing up mountains on my bike as many times as I can, and swimming across lakes! Triathlon is not just about a race. It is about the journey to build mental fitness, confidence, resilience, patience, and the ability to push myself in all aspects of life.
