I was born to marathon-running parents, so I knew marathons would be in my future someday. After running in high school and college and continuing to get injured, I met my now husband (and coach) who incorporated swimming and biking into my run training. It really helped and I had some great marathons! He was already a triathlete so decided to get me to join in him one, the Buffalo Lake Springs 70.3 back in 2010. I had so much fun and didn't even realize I had missed qualifying for Kona by 9 seconds because I was enjoying the race so much. We decided to try and qualify for Kona after our wedding day on 10/13/12 by competing in Eagleman 70.3. We both had to win our age groups and barely did! We've been competing in Kona for the past 7 years (would have been 8 but covid...) and just LOVE sharing our passion for the sport with others.
