I started swimming when I was seven, and I loved to run. When I was 10 my friend asked me to do a triathlon with him, and from then on I was hooked. I joined MMTT (Multisport Madness Triathlon Team) the following year.
My favorite ITU race has been the 2009 Gold Coast World Champs because I have always dreamed of racing in Australia. I loved how enthusiastic the fans were, how great the beaches were, and how friendly everyone was.
The biggest obstacle that I have overcome is having hand and knee surgery within six months of each other when I was in middle school.
