Background:

I have been involved in sports since I ran cross country in high school.  Over the years my passion for running expanded to the sport of triathlon.  As an athlete I have had the good fortune to qualify and compete in The Boston Marathon, Ironman 70.3 Triathlon World Championship, the World Long Course Duathlon World Championship and the USAT Olympic World Triathlon championships.  I have completed two Ironman’s and I am a sub 3 hour marathoner.     

While being a competitive athlete is a part of my DNA my biggest accomplishments come from the athletes that I coach.  Through coaching I have aided in more race finishes, personal bests, and world qualifications than I will ever achieve as an athlete.
