I have always believed in #LivingLifeEveryDay, even before being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2019. Enduring and persevering through challenges has made me even more grateful for what I can do and for the wonderful people in my life. I did my first triathlon in 2012. Completed 8 Ironman branded 140.6 races since then and registered for IM Chattanooga in September 2020. Completed 11 - 70.3 races. Placed 4th in the 45-49 age group at Ironman Louisville 2018 just 8 weeks after fracturing my pelvis. Ultra racing is my passion. In August 2019, I was the overall female finisher at the Mid Atlantic 24 hour non-drafting bike time trial. I completed 434 miles and qualified for RAAM. I was diagnosed with cancer just weeks later in September 2019 and had surgery in October 2019. I recovered and set my goal on another 24 hour bike TT... Bike Sebring in Florida in February 2020. I completed 409 miles, was second overall female and again making RAAM qualification. The weeks following Sebring, I was scheduled for and completed body scans and radiation treatments for the residual cancer. This year has been a unique year in many aspects. Even with races being cancelled and fighting for my life, I LIVE!! I am having a blast. I seek out the gravel courses for races that were cancelled. If you ever want an epic gravel ride, check out Funk Bottoms Gravel. In July, I am going to ride the 2 loop 200k+ mile (132 miles actually) course. During all of my training, events, and races, I fuel and hydrate with Infinit. The Women’s GoFar and new GoFar Fruit Punch and Speed are my favorites.
