Athletic Accomplishments

Road Races

I think we have established my love of running. Now, let’s see how fast I can move:

I absolutely love to write about running and racing. Seeing newbies out there chasing their dreams or veterans who keep learning and loving the sport are all part of what continues to make running and racing great!

Triathlon and Duathlon

I’m a relative newcomer to duathlon and triathlon. I raced my first ever spring triathlon just three months after my twins were born in 2009. When I found out you could skip the swim part, I started training competitively for duathlon and represented Team USA at the World Championship in Spain in 2014.

In 2015 I qualified for nationals in triathlon and will be competing the Olympic distance in Omaha, NE in the summer of 2016 for another spot on Team USA!

I love being able to write about duathlon and triathlon as a newbie. Obviously training for three disciplines is much more complicated then training for road races. And, as I become an “aging athlete” my body certainly appreciates the change up in exercises and my mind craves the new knowledge and soaks up the experiences of this new world.
