Growing up, I struggled constantly to uphold the appearance of normality. As I got older, the harder something sounded, the more I wanted to accomplish it. I was first introduced to the sport of triathlon as a camper at Kanakuk Kamps. It was the hardest of all the “specialities” a camper could choose from. Naturally, I took on the challenge.
After high school, I stopped working out as much, and in retrospect, my health reflected it. I completed my first sprint triathlon in April of 2009, but after getting hospitalized in June I realized that for me, working out is more than working out. For me, training is closely connected with my quality of life both emotionally and physically. I do triathlons to live, and I live for the challenge.
