How did you get into triathlon: I ran cross country in high school and when I got to college I signed up for a marathon. While training for the marathon I stumbled upon the triathlon team and tried it out the next semester. Long story short, I won't be running another marathon any time soon.

Favorite thing about triathlon: I just love that the long course races are known and referred to as "Ironman" races. Despite being owned by a for-profit company, the name does do a great job of describing those who are able to go through so much physical and mental pain in one day. I hope to complete at the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona one day.

Favorite race: Collegiate Nationals in Tempe, AZ

Sports background: Cross Country and Track in high school.

Other hobbies and interests: Cooking and eating, but mostly eating.

Hidden talents: I have a pretty nasty curve in bowling.

Anything else unique or awesome:  I was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I own a cheesehead and have been ice fishing.
