My Favorite…
…tri discipline is cycling but swimming is closing in. But nothing is fun without training buddies!

How I Got Into Triathlons
I ran into my friend, Sage, who had just gotten certified as a USAT Level 1 coach. She talked me into training for the August, 2006 Sportsplex Sprint. Sage is still my coach.

Best Race…So Far!
The 2008 Beach 2 Battleship Half. Was utterly shocked that I could finish that distance.

Best Tri Experience
The Rhode Island 70.3 in 2009. The best way to see my home state, ever.

Craziest Race Moment
Flashing the entire crowd during T2 at the 2008 B2B Half. And yes, I was in the changing tent. They had “forgotten” to put down the sides. At that point, I did not care.

I have met most of my goals. Now, I just want to get better at swimming.
