I remember when I first started my journey. I was constantly searching for how to begin … what gear to buy … training plans. Ultimately, the best guidance came from others that had done it. I created this site in hopes that it might provide you with that guidance to succeed.
My story is simple, I discovered triathlon late in life. I was 44 and one year into my journey to become healthier. I had conquered my goal to run a 5k and was pursuing a half marathon. A running injury sidelined me and a friend suggested I try a spinning class or swimming to maintain my endurance. Turns out I loved it!
My original goal of a half marathon became a training milestone, and eventually lead to my first olympic distance triathlon a year later. That was not enough, though. The next year I spectated some friends participating in Ironman Lake Placid. Seeing them cross that finish line did it for me … I had to do it! Not to keep pace. No, this was for ME! Something inside me wanted to know just how far I could push my body. I needed to know that I could do anything I set out to do. A year later, with help from some amazing friends, I did it!
I have since crossed the finish line of seven Full Ironman triathlons and a handful of Half Ironmans as well. Now I want to share my passion with you.
