Long-time runner turned triathlete during the pandemic. I didn't run in college or anything but improved to 1:15 in the half marathon & 2:42 in the marathon before doing my 1st Olympic Triathlon in the fall of 2020. Off of 2 months of swimming/biking, I placed 1st in my Age Group. I debuted at the 70.3 distance less than a year later & qualified for Worlds by finishing 15th OA & 4th AG at Musselman. I finished in 4:25, with the 2nd fastest run split (1:19-flat half). I had a good experience at Worlds but was overly cautious during the bad weather on the bike to give myself a chance to finish higher up. I definitely want to get back there & am willing to work as hard as I can to get better.

I also had a pulmonary embolism in 2016 (blood clot that went to my lung) so there's that.
