Off-Day ActivityChasing around my 2 year old and 6 year old. Going for a hike in the park with my family.

After many years of no exercise or drive, I attended the 2012 REV3 Triathlon at Cedar Point to watch a friend compete. I was so inspired from what I saw! Driving home, I turned to my wife and told her that I would done one of those one day. At that point, I had not run a 5K, swam a lap, and was a casual cyclist. That winter, I trained and did my first sprint triathlon in 2013. In 2014, I did my first 70.3. 6 years later, I have completed 4 70.3's and one day an Ironman. I lost 70 pounds and have drive, energy, and feel motivated! Recently, I have gotten into trail running and love it! I'm 37 years old and have a wife and 2 kids and work as a Social Media Marketing Manager at Mr. Heater. I also have been Curling for 19 years!
