I am a self-employed lawyer, mom of three, runner, triathlete, aspiring yogi, and vegan. I began running about 10 years ago but it wasn’t until after the birth of my second child that I began to consider myself an athlete. I had always had the goal of competing in a triathlon in the back of my head. I think I saw a documentary about Ironman as a child and since then had been fascinated. When my daughter was about 6 months old I was feeling tired, overweight, sluggish, and depressed. I decided that it was finally time to try something new so I talked to my family, told them my crazy goal, and signed up for a nearby IronGirl sprint Tri. In the process of training for that race I lost about 40 pounds, and felt stronger and fitter that I ever had as an adult. After that race, I was hooked! When I became pregnant with my third child, I stayed active and continued running, swimming, and biking through my pregnancy. I am currently training for my first half-iron distance race and my first marathon. I am a vegan because of my love for animals and the environment, and eat primarily whole-foods plant based for my health. I love encouraging my kids to be fit and healthy too. We spend lots of time outside hiking, playing, and finding adventure!
