After dipping my toe in the triathlon world in 2009 with limited preparation for participation in the Kirkwood Triathlon and the Alligator Creek Triathlon, I really trained for my first triathlon in 2011 with Team in Training. Through that experience, I found the St. Louis Triathlon Club and have been a member ever since. Since then, I have compelted six 70.3 distance races and several shorter events. I have a goal of completing a signficant event in every state so I find fun places to compete – 19 down and many to go!
When I’m not training, I’m usually found hanging out with my dogs, Bradley and Charlie, and, to support my race habit, I’m a school psychologist with Special School District of St. Louis County.
