Like many high school and college athletes, I began to gain weight soon after graduating. Participating in team sports and being very active all of my life, I now found myself sitting at a desk the majority of the day and enjoying a few choice adult beverages in the evening – a great way to pack on the pounds. I started running and cycling to drop some weight but was soon drawn to the full-body physical challenge of triathlon (not a lot of upper body in running and cycling). I learned to swim and the rest is history. I completed my first sprint triathlon in the summer of 2009 and was hooked. I immediately signed up for a half-Ironman later that summer. After completing that race, I secured Craig Culver to coach me to my first Ironman completion in 2010. His plan and the accountability got me across the finish line in good time and in GREAT spirits.
