My current race age is 47 and I have been doing triathlons since 2010. 2020 will be my 4th time doing Barrelman.

When much younger I was a cyclist, but had fallen out of the sport with life and kids.  When my oldest daughter decided that she wanted to do a triathlon I figured that I had to do one also, I could not just let her go out and train on her own.

We completed a sprint triathlon, and I shortly stepped up to doing half distance triathlons. I completed a full in 2014, and in 2020 my goal is to complete another. Typically, I do 2 halfs per year as well as various other races.

My current career is working in IT as a data analyst in healthcare. Data has also been a defining thing in my past jobs, as well as throughout my training.

My profile pic is one of favorite race photos, it is at the end of Barrelman in 2018 which I did on only 7 weeks of training (124 days after surgery) after fracturing my shoulder (coracoid and clavicle) in a crash with a dog.
