About Me, My Races and Goals

About Me:

I started running 5K in 2008 and instantly fell in love with the competition. My first 5K timed race was June 22nd 2008 in Smiths falls, Ontario and I kept going from there. By March of 2009, I ran the 30K Around the Bay in Hamilton, Ontario. Within two months of that, I started competing in Duathlons and by September of 2009 I competed in my first Half Iron Distance Duathlon. In December of 2009, I signed on for my first 70.3 Ironman race in New Hampshire for 2010…but I needed to learn how to swim first. So I jumped in the pool in December of 2009 and started the painful and sometimes frustrating activity of swimming. In August 2010, I completed the Timberman 70.3 . In 2011, I did my first full Ironman in Lake Placid.  My love of running has never faded and I began thinking more and more about Ultramarathons. In 2014 I focussed on Ultra running specifically and fell in love with trails and a new aspect of endurance. I now cycle between Triathlon and Ultra running enjoying everything I do.
