When I joined the Army in 2004 physical fitness became a big part of my life. As I saw improvements in my run times, pushup and situp scores, etc., it started to motivate me. I did my first race in 2006, an Army sponsored 10k that funded an Army Ball. I did alright, but it motivated me to continue to enter races. After a deployment to Iraqi in 2007, that motivated turned into triathlon. I have placed fairly well in multiple regions throughout the country that I've been stationed in, including Texas in 2008, California (Monterey Bay) in 2009/10, and Georgia/Southeast since 2010.
Qualify for the XTERRA Off Road World Championship in Hawaii, Win my Age Group in at least one Olympic Distance Triathlon, and run a sub 90 minute half marathon.
