In 1992 I jumped in to my first triathlon on a dare. I was the second to last finisher of the entire event! It was one of the most empowering moments of my life! Needless to say, I fell in love with the sport of triathlon :
Over the past 24 years, I have trained and raced at all levels ranging from "back of the pack" age grouper to professional athlete. I've learned so many lessons on this journey and some of the most significant are:
1. Never give up. If you believe you can do something the probability that you can instantly becomes 100%
2. Life will always bring many obstacles but they will be overcome with patience and perseverance. There is a solution to everything!
3. Things happen for a reason, we need to let things flow and trust that life always finds a balance.
Triathlon has enriched my life in so many ways and given me so much joy that I want to share that with everyone I can. I've been coaching for 9 years and I've had the privilege to work with all types of athletes ranging from 5k runners to Ironman World Championship qualifiers.
My main goal as a coach is to share a vast range of experience and knowledge gained over 24 years of dedicated training and racing and 46 years of living! I want to teach and inspire others in a way that helps them reach their ultimate goals.
