I came to triathlon at 19 years old from a competitive running background, thinking that if I could run a marathon, I could swim 400 yards. I did, but it wasn't pretty and ended up with my breakfast being seen by all out on the course!
From there I made it my goal to improve and to complete an IRONMAN race. Leading up to that first 140.6 in 2011, I qualified for the Boston Marathon, raced bicycles in road, cross, trail and tri, and continued to work on improving my swim.
I have completed IRONMAN Wisconsin twice, and more short & Olympic course tri's than I can count. I have always been convinced that all you need is a willing spirit and a sound training plan to make it to the finish, and that all people are capable of great things!
I started coaching high school Cross Country and Track & Field in 2002, and have been coaching ever since in some manner or another. My focus has shifted from high school athletics to Elite and Age Group endurance athletes and helping them reach their individual goals.
I look forward to continuing to grow Triathlon and Multi-sport competition in the Twin Cities area and hope to see you out there!
