After Running collegiately at Midland I wanted to expand my athletic abilities so I got a bike from my mentor, The Run Guru. A custom carbon fiber Trek road bike. I quickly became obsessed with how much more area I can explore on my bike rather than footing it across town. 3 months later I entered into my first triathlon in the best possible place to compete, Valley Nebraska, in the newest lake development called Blue Water. I fell in love with the sport and eventually signed up for my first half ironman the following year. A year after that I am currently training with coach cope for a half ironman in one of my favorite places on earth, Palm Springs California. Where I will be trying to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 world championship.
