Who?

Everyone loves a good underdog story. After successfully completing my first sprint triathlon in 2007 with a training plan I tore out of Fitness Magazine and a hybrid bike,
I have spent the better part of a decade transforming myself from a back-of-pack beginner with no athletic background, to competitive at any race triathlon distance (except Olympic … they’re the worst!) I train and race by the motto that Anything is Possible! I am always learning new things about each discipline and myself—and love passing along those lessons to beginners starting their own in cycling and triathlon careers. I also enjoy sharing my adventures in training and racing through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and my blog, as time permits.

When I’m not racing, I’m sharing my love for sport through my job at Brooks Running. Or, I’m traveling, eating really good food, spoiling my dog, or working in my garden. I’m learning to love trail running, too, so you just might see me pick up camping as well ….

    Hi! I noticed we both have the same bike…Felt DA4W 🙂 However you have upgraded the wheels & I haven’t due to issues witht he breaks rubbing. Did you have that problem and if so how did you fix it??

      Thanks for your comment. I still have some issues with my breaks rubbing on the Firecrest wheels. You have to be very precise when putting them on. It’s not that big of a deal when you are riding it for a TT, but for a triathlon, it’s a little more tricky since it can get bumped around a lot in transition after you leave it unattended to head to the swim start.

      I also have the breaks widened by my bike mechanic before each race where I use the Firecrests. They can be a logistical pain, but they are so stable in the wind that that is such a nice feature to have on a lot of courses.

      I hope this helps and I hope you love your DA4W was much as I love mine!
