Growing up, I wanted nothing more than to play professional baseball. When I started out, I was pretty terrible but, I found that an infinite amount of hard work will quickly make up for a lack of talent. I played baseball through college and in 2007 was projected to be drafted in the top 15 rounds. Nothing incredible, somewhat lackluster even, but it was a foot in the door and a major step towards the dream I always wanted. Than in a flash that dream was gone.
A dirty play at the plate left me with a fully torn ACL, MCL and meniscus. My legs, which had always been my major strength, immediately became my biggest weakness.
I graduated college and quickly found a good job, but I was just spinning my wheels. Without the solitary goal that had provided driving forces my entire life, I did not know where to focus my energy. My best friend recognized this and the fact that I was heading for trouble and challenged me to compete in an Olympic distance triathlon with him. It was to be both of our's first race.
I trained what I thought was a crazy amount, including swims up to 1000 yards and runs up to three miles!
I finished in 3:54 and it was one of the best times I have ever had.
From the moment I crossed that first finish line, I was hooked on this sport. Triathlon has become a way of life. All of the cycling has seemed to be a constant source of rehab for my knee and it is now stronger than ever. My goal is to soon take this passion to the next level and join the professional ranks.
I have decided to put myself in the best possible position to achieve that goal and in February of this year, my wife and I quit our jobs and moved from southern Alabama to Boulder, Colorado. In Boulder I have access to some of the best triathlon training in the country and a plethora of elite and professional athletes to push me in the right direction.
