I raced my first Ironman in 2012 to fulfill a lifelong dream of being an Ironman. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had and I was immediately hooked. I love racing all distance triathlons, but I have to say Ironman is my favorite. There is something special about it, every race I learn so much about myself, push my boundaries, and become a stronger more dynamic athlete.
This will be my first time racing at Kona. I couldn’t be more proud to represent Colorado, Vixxen Racing and EK Endurance Coaching!
I used to race motocross and while my best friend was hurt he did a sprint triathlon and took 2nd, we are so competitive that I said “I could do that and beat you.”
That winter we signed up for 2013 Kansas 70.3 and that was that I was hooked. I ran in college for one year so I had a little running background, but I love cycling and it has easily became my favorite thing to do. My wife and I moved to Colorado in 2014 for all the beauties of the front range. I love the 70.3 distance the most and have completed in 8 with the last one 70.3 World Championships in Chattanooga. I was lucky enough to qualify for Kona in 2015 at the Boulder Ironman in my first crack at the distance.
I am the luckiest dude in the world and have a beautiful wife that is so out of my league it is not even funny. I have a 17 month old baby boy named Bodhi and he is one radical dude. My training life happens in the wee hours of the morning 3:30-4am before work so when I get home I can spend as much time with my family as possible.
My life is like a dream and I cannot express my gratitude enough to be able to go back to Kona and suffer in the lava fields!!!
