I dabble in corporate life and office antics by day, and am an ironman & general sweaty person by night, early morning and weekend.
It’s so nice to meet you.
Sport has been my biggest teacher. I’ve run across deserts, crossed hundreds of finish lines, learned to listen to my body, to welcome challenge, to let go of stuff that doesn't matter (like toenails), to change my clothes really fast and to be unapologetically myself.
I saw Ironman Hawaii on TV when I was 9. From that moment on, I knew what I wanted to be. Not because I wanted a medal, but because of what I saw on peoples faces when they crossed the finish line. It was incredible and I wanted to find some of that deep satisfaction mixed with exhaustion for myself. Fast forward 20+ years and here I am, a few Ironmans under my belt and a whole lot of adventure and it’s just the beginning.
I can't live without
