I am a woman who seeks to glorify God in all that I do and strives to keep a healthy balance between family, work, fitness, and rest--not an easy task in today's world. I have been married to my husband, Clay, for 5 years and we have 2 gorgeous daughters, Megan(12) and Ashley(10). I work part-time at CrossPointe Church as one of the Children's Ministry Directors. In 2010, I found myself unmotivated to exercise and was watching the pounds creep up a few each year but I reluctantly signed up for TRI 101 with a friend. I detested running and had never even done a 5K let alone a triathlon. That year I found a new passion for fitness and fell in love with triathlons! I am now also Co-Head Coach of the TRI 101 program for Fleet Feet.
As I enter my 5th season, I am 30 pounds lighter, have met the most amazing group of triathletes, struggled through injures, butI still can't believe all I have accomplished that i would have never believed possible! Sprints, olympics, half marathons, marathons, and a half Ironman. But what I am most proud of is not the times or the places but taking the risk each time to push myself further and further past my comfort zone to accomplish what I truly believed at one time to be impossible. I am so grateful for the opportunity through coaching and the racing team to be apart of other people experiencing the very same joy!
Short Term Goals
To continue to rehab my hip and successfully add miles and minutes to my training plan to be able to complete several local sprint tri's I have never done before.
Long Term Goals
To use this season to rebuild my cardio training base and speed so that next year I can complete several 70.3's agin.
