CYCLING / PARATRIATHLON / ADAPTIVE CLIMBING
I was an elite cyclist and triathlete who had the honor of representing Team USA at the ITU World Championships. But a car-on-bike crash cost me part of my right hand and my dreams of going pro. Due to my unusual injury and amputation level, I've had to develop my own adaptive devices so I could return to swimming, biking, and running safely and without pain at the level I was accustomed to.
Accomplishments from 2021: Summited 4 14ers despite lack of acclimatization, including 2 solo and 1 in winter conditions!
Goals for 2022: Best my 2020 60-day running streak (at 12 so far!), compete in some local sprint triathlons, summit at least 5 14ers, and continue working towards summiting Cotopaxi in 2024.
Favorite Fluid flavor: Training: Blueberry Pomegranate. Racing: Fresh Citrus. Recovery: Chocolate in winter, Mixed Berry in summer.
