I am an athlete by burning desire and an endurance athlete because I was too small for football (so claims my mother). I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a B.S. in Mass Communication, but decided I was more interested in racing triathlons than running a TV station. Since 2007, I have raced tris and running races on all corners of the country. I was a personal trainer for 3 years before transitioning my focus to endurance coaching. I can currently be found exploring the mountains and desert floor of the American Southwest. My goal this season is the 40k time trial.
