I learned to swim and cycle as an adult and will never forget surviving my first triathlon ten years ago; it was both a scary and exhilarating experience! A couple more races later and I became hooked, having discovered a sport that continues to challenge me thru today and allowed for much personal growth over the years. While my passion remains running (and I’ve been known to run races decked out in a costume!), the world of triathlons has afforded me opportunities to build great friendships, visit some beautiful race sites, and truly push my mental and physical limits.
After spending nearly a decade living and working in NYC, and somehow training thru freezing winters and hot, humid summers, I was thrilled to return to SF and within months discover GGTC. I joined the club after attending a happy hour and group ride and knew I had found the best club in town that included a supportive community of athletes, creative and informative programming, inspiring coaches, and overall great fun while racing and beyond.
I feel truly fortunate to have completed 6 Ironman races in Switzerland, Canada, Spain, Brazil, Denmark, and Austria, nearly 20 half Ironmans and Olympic distance races throughout the U.S., and many half and full marathons. 2017 was an especially special year, as I competed at 70.3 World Championships and proudly represented GGTC.
