Growing up, I called myself a swimmer. I did a few marathons, and called myself a runner. I now proudly call myself a triathlete. After competing in my first triathlon in 2012, I fell in love with the sport and began this amazing adventure. Follow me as I chase my dreams as a professional athlete!
Happy new year! 2012 was a good year for me in running and triathlon. It was a relief to make it through the year with not one injury setback! Being able to consistently train throughout the year brought some good racing with multiple PRs. I got back in the pool, and even competed in a few swim meets.

At this point, I didn’t even have a bike, and I had been back in the pool for only a couple of weeks!
I completed my first triathlon! Overall, I can say it went smoothly and successfully. I had a lot of fun, and was happy with my final times and finishing place. Here’s the full race recap…
Last night, I attended “Newbie Night” at Quad Cycles in Arlington. It was hosted by 3 Max Performance race directors (one being my favorite A.R.T. specialist from Active Release Boston!), and covered everything from transition set-up, to race start times, to nutrition. Most of it was specific to the Season Opener triathlon in 1.5 weeks, but a lot of it can be applied to any triathlon.
Last weekend was my first multi-sport race at the Wrentham Duathlon! This duathlon is pretty short – a 3 mile run, 11 mile bike, and 2 mile run, and a great race to start off the season! It was a beautiful day, and I had great support – my Mom, my sister and her boyfriend made the trip to watch me race.
