I am a 44 year old actuary and mother to an 19 year old boy and 7 year old girl. I've always been competitive my entire life. I was a dancer and cheerleader. I never swam. I never rode bikes. And I sure didn't run. After my daughter was born, I decided to start running to loose weight and fell in love with it. I had always wanted to do a triathlon so I said, why wait. I contacted a local tri club and jumped in with both feet. I did my first 70.3 that year and knew I was hooked. The next year I completed my first Ironman. I did my second Ironman the next year. I also became the president of my tri club. I love this sport and try to get everyone involved that I can. My favorite triathlon moment was watching my daughter cross the finish line in her first triathlon. After a year off with a shoulder injury and surgery, I was able to get back to racing in 2018 and finished Ironman Louisville. 2019 is my year to get more fit and faster!
