So…what to say?

I’m a happily married guy living in Northeast Florida.  I have three amazing kids and two dogs.  I have a career that takes up lots of my time (duh), lots of kid-related activities, and not a whole lot of time to devote to swimbikerun.  That said, I love competing in triathlon.

Back in the day (read:  Junior High and High School) I was a runner.  Track & cross country.  I grew up in Chapel Hill, NC, and was fortunate enough to run with some very talented kids.  I was a middle distance runner (800m and 1600m) and was a pole vaulter (though not a good one).  I had aspirations of running on the cross country team when I went to college at Appalachian State University, but no such luck.

I took up cycling while in college.  I was a Cat 4 racer, and enjoyed time trials and road races.  Critieriums?  Not so much.

After college, I stopped cycling and running and became a couch potato.  In the early 2000’s, I picked up running and cycling again.  I competed in my first triathlon in 2006, and have been hooked ever since.  I’ve competed at all of triathlon’s distances.  In 2009, I became an Ironman.
