Marathon crusher, IRONMAN Finisher, Cupcake Demolisher
I’m a former DNF (did not finish) turned IRONMAN at IRONMAN Arizona. My favorite sport within triathlon is the run. When asked why, my answer is simple, “Because I can finally talk to someone!”
I have a zest for life and my outfits at workouts definitely show it. I love to run and am known as V Squared (ask and I’ll tell you the story behind it). Although the fun comes easy to me in tri, I hold strong when it comes to the challenges. Everyday can feel like a battle when training. I’ve conquered 4 flats in a day, ill- fitting spandex and even a bumble bee stuck in my helmet (things didn’t end well for the bee). I have had some epic falls, some while just standing over my bike in the parking lot.
I love fostering new partnerships within charity and triathlon. I love ‘smiling and profiling’ in sunny San Diego and I definitely keep the “Smile” in Smile Train real.
