Why I Race

I’m not an inherently athletic or fast person, so I started running due to good old fashioned sibling rivalry. My sister had just completed the Columbus half marathon, so I decided I would do the Chicago full marathon the following year. Despite not having run since gym class in middle school, I went for it and ended up loving to run. During marathon training, I discovered triathlons, specifically Ironman triathlons, after spectating Ironman Texas 2015 for my boyfriend. I became very interested in the Chicago Olympic Triathlon, and completed my first triathlon and marathon in the same year. The people I’ve met along the way are amazing, and I look forward to training with them for years to come!

Within 3 years of starting to run, I will have completed over 20 races, including 3 marathons, 2 Olympic triathlons, 3 Ironman 70.3 triathlons, and 1 full Ironman triathlon, if all goes well in 2017.  :)


Why I Support Blessons

Blessons makes it possible for women in need to obtain scholarships to pursue an education. As I chase my new dreams, I am honored to work with an incredible organization and with amazing people to raise money to help give other women a chance to follow their dreams.
