Former competitive swimmer, turned marathon runner, turned Ironman athlete. I was a swimmer my entire life up until college. While I was getting recruited to D1 schools, it just did not make sense from a monetary standpoint. I decided to take four years off, beknownst to me my drive for endurance sports dwindled. I was at a turning point in my life, smoking over a pack of cigarettes a day with little to no motivation. One day working in a start up renewable energy company, my colleague bet me to do the marathon. I finished with a 3:17 time, since then i've been motivated to find faster. I decided to join a triathlon to change things up a bit and I was hooked! The bike especially, going out with friends on long rides was the thrill I was looking for.
