I can't think of a time that I didn't run. Our parents ran so we ran. It has always been a huge part of my life. Road races were just a thing we always did. I grew up in Hartselle so we would always come over to Huntsville to race. We had a lot of fun doing it. I didn't do a triathlon until I was 14. My dad started racing in tris so I wanted to also. I raced some throughout high school but soccer was my main priority. I started playing when I was 8 and played up to the college level. I came back to triathlon after I moved home from Tennessee. I moved to Huntsville soon after that. Since then I have done many local sprints and Olympic distance triathlons. A couple years ago I started with longer distances including half Ironmans. I did my first Ironman in 2015 it was an awesome experience. I love racing competitively but I always want to keep it fun also.
