Started doing triathlons in 2010 in NYC when I was first diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Doctors said that I wouldn't be able to live the lifestyle I was used to. Swimming, running, and biking wouldn't be possible. Tying my shoelaces and opening doors was hard enough as it was. However, the sport of triathlon was my way out, to prove to doubters that anything is possible. Since 2010, I've completed four full Ironman (Coeur d'Alene, NY/NJ, Lake Placid, Whistler) races, over ten half Ironman distance races, and have raced in the USAT Age Group National Championships. My race nutrition was poor when I first began (primarily Gatorade and GUs), but Infinit has been my weapon of choice in not only triathlons, but all sport/athletic activities. Many of my friends are now new converts (especially the MUD)!
