Before I was a professional triathlete, I was... a student at OU Medical Center. I received my Medical Degree in May of 2006.
Describe your introduction to triathlon. I grew up in a family of swimmers and in the summers we would dabble in Ironkids races for fun. I remember going to the National Championships at SeaWorld, it was the coolest thing ever! After I turned 14, I was too 'old' for Ironkids, so that was the end of triathlon...until I started medical school. Some triathletes up at the gym saw me swimming and told me I should do a triathlon. I was very resistant to the idea but finally gave in and did a super sprint race (300yd pool swim, 10mi bike, 2mi run) in Bixby, OK and loved it. I was hooked!
Who has influenced your triathlon career the most/and how? My first triathlon coach was Mike Pigg. He had a huge influence on steering me in the right direction and gave me so much great advice. He always said I could learn from all his mistakes, so I wouldn't have to make the same ones. I have definitely made my own mistakes along the way, but he certainly made sure I bypassed a few. He also shared with me his passion for the sport.
Which event do you most look forward to each year and why? The Brookhaven 10K in Oklahoma...it's where I met my husband. Each year we do a race together to celebrate!
