About me

A collegiate tennis player turned Ironman athlete, now ultra-runner. For me it has never been about the medals, records, winning the races or making the podium. Endurance racing for me is about the fears, the tears, the laughs and the smiles. It is all about the shared experiences and the emotions such as the feelings of rawness and vulnerability and yet we find strength in body, mind and spirit to continue to the finish line. What is more is I get to share this with all my like-minded friends along the way.
