I'm a high school English teacher (and coach) by profession, giving me a lot of great training time during summers especially. I was a Division 1 college rower at Brown University, and swam & ran competitively before that. I run & train year-round, run competitively, am usually a top swimmer at triathlons, and have been riding & racing bikes (mostly road) for over 20 years. I'm excited to try more gravel events in 2020 – gravel bike racing and gravel duathlons/triathlons (not cyclocross). I'm an avid hiker and have done lots of trail racing. I also enjoy volunteering with bike clubs and outdoor clubs at race events including gravel races, grand fondos, and community service/trail building-maintenance events for road cycling and mountain biking. I have a deep interest in the science of sport, both technology/engineering and physiological, and read a lot about what's going on in the world endurance sports (especially tri/running/cycling/swimming).
