About Me

51 is the new 40!  Or so I say anyway...

Kids...2 well, actually 2 adults now.  21 and 23, hard to believe, Riley and JD both are in college working hard towards a future of being self sufficient.  Empty nesting is something I highly recommend, especially if you are a triathlete...more time to train.

What's next....Wife- hate that word.  But I am married to an exceptional, eccentric, brilliant and very fun loving man.  JB -  he is all that and more!

Triathlete...well since most of my blog is consumed with that....a bit of history. Collegiate swimmer- LSU.  After college I quit swimming for good, well at least I thought so.  I did not swim for nearly 20 years.   Became a couch potato for about a year and found running.  Over the years worked my way up to marathons and was addicted.  Many injuries lead to a months of not running and I discovered cycling...next up Triathlon.

I did my first Sprint without any swim training 11 years ago- loved it and was hooked!  Within a year I signed up for 2 x70.3's and the next year Ironman baby.  2008 was the beginning of the greatest addiction ever!!! Ironman.  And here we are today!  6x Kona qualifier and still loving everything about Swim.Bike.Run.  Kona is magical, painful and one of my favorite places.

My real job has me negotiating hotel contracts for companies and associations and my passionate job has me coaching triathletes!  https://coach2compete.com/

I race for the Nytro Womens Racing Team and train with the greatest women!  I am truly blessed.
