Biggest Accomplishments

I qualified and competed in the Xterra world championships in XXXX, but more importantly I found a great group of people to train, have fun, and exercise with.


Have fun! Most of us are not paid to compete, so the most important aspect is to have fun. It is great to have goals and work on improving your performance,  just don't let that take over. Also, reach out to find a few groups to connect with. It might take a little while, but you will find some friends and training buddies along the way.

If I'm Not Competing...

I am sailing. I have had boats my entire life and love my time on the water.

One Thing You Don't Know About Me:

I was not a very serious athlete until my late 30s. I knew that I needed to do something active, so I purchased a low end mountain bike and lost about 50 lbs. I love how I feel now! It never gets easier, you just get faster.
