Hi! My name is Sarah. My husband and I live just outside of Knoxville, TN.
We have 2 young kids (4 and 6). I also work full time, and am an avid, PASSIONATE triathlete!
In 2016, my husband and I signed up for our first sprint tri, not really knowing anything about the sport. I wanted to do something that would force me to get in shape before we went for baby number 2, and I got all fat and pregnant again. I ended up being 17 weeks pregnant the day of that race... (whoops!). It was awful, and I was HOOKED! The feeling of accomplishment, and the INCREDIBLE community sucked me in and i've never looked back!
I have now done short course triathlons for 5 years. In 2019 I did my first Ironman 70.3, and had 6 months of Ironman training under my belt in 2020 until my race was canceled. I deferred to the 2021 date and am just a couple months away from starting to build my load back up. I can't WAIT!
Motherhood nearly ate me up, and triathlon has become the life-line, the "me" time, the goal setting and sense of accomplishment I need to fill my cup, and allow me to then pour out into those in my life.
