2020 has been a trying year for us all, full of hope, then disappointment. It’s been the year for us endurance athletes of sign up for events, train and cross fingers just to have the event cancelled/postponed. So how does one stay motivated and fit during these times? How does one keep hope and chasing races that might happen with optimism and focus to be fit and ready? Let’s say it’s not easy, but when your passion is swim, bike, and run and when the world is full of sadness and craziness the chance to go into the outdoors and swim, bike or run is that place we can escape the heartache of the world and just breathe. ...

For my first blog post, I thought I’d tell you a little about me….but where to start? Here it goes. I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota, went to college here and married my husband here. We are raising our three kids here too. I work part time as a doctor of physical therapy.

Since this is mostly about my training and triathlon life I’ll give you some background on my athletic life–It’s eclectic. I competed in figure skating for a couple years. When that got too expensive, I started and later competed in dance. When that got to be too much I tried volleyball and softball for a couple years. I joined the swim team in 7th grade. I swam competitively through high school and didn’t swim again until two years ago. I also ran track in junior high. One of my biggest regrets was not running track in high school. I didn’t think I could handle both the swim team and track at the same time. I also played hockey in junior high and high school. My best friend played and wanted me to play. I could skate so why not?! I enjoyed hockey, but my heart was in swimming....
