Former NAVY Officer that retired in March after serving this amazing country. Started doing triathlons when I returned from deployment to the Middle East in 2016. Slowly getting back into it after having knee surgery to fix my meniscus and PCL this year. Absolutely love everything that this team stands for. I have run half marathon’s, full marathon, Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. Excited to do Pittsburgh 5k, Pittsburgh Half Marathon in May, Eagleman 70.3 in June, North Carolina 70.3 in October, and will probably add some other races if my knee allows me to. Also excited to do Mercuryman in November.
More than anything, I follow what I learned the most in the NAVY: put your teammates ahead of yourself, and always cheer the loudest for them. Never, ever leave a teammate behind.
I’m not the most talented athlete, but I will always work hard, and strive to improve everyday.
