Helped start the triathlon club, and was a former vice president of it, at Grand Valley State U. Did a bunch of triathlons around/just after college '05-09, as well as the 25K in Grand rapids 5 times. That was awesome. After taking a few years off, getting married, starting a family... I started running again then had a nasty broken ankle in Aug '18. A plate, 7 screws, spiral fracture and full syndesmotic rupture... After not waking for 3 months I was so happy to start working out, and haven't stopped since! Did my first 2 70.3 races last year, and even set a personal best for an Olympic tri (2:14, very early in the season). My swim for Lake placid 70.3 was a 1:26/100 pace, my 20min bike ftp was 314W last week, and earlier this year I almost went sub 19min again in my 5k. Just this year I got diagnosed with hypothyroidism- still trying to figure that nonsense out, and mainly my running too a hit because of it. But hey, I still love training. I've been training with an absolutely amazing training platform, Tridot, and I'm now one of their brand ambassadors. I live in the Cleveland area, and I've seen you guys talked about on the CTC Facebook page. That's how I came to know of this application.
Did IMCHOO in '21. 6th out of the water, 9th off the bike. IT band injury set me back to 20th in my age group.
4:52 70.3 at Steelhead in June, and qualified for world's in St. George this year!
