How & when did you get in to multisport: I was introduced to multisport in 2009. Had no prior swim/bike/run background. I did the Cleveland Triathlon as part of a relay team and that was my first exposure to the sport. I set the olympic distance as my goal for the next year. At that point, I never ran more than 1 mile and never been on a road bike before. One year later, I finished one sprint, and two olympic distance races.

Do you like training with groups or solo & why: I like group training. Being around other athletes pushes you a lot more. However, I do most of my training solo. I try to fit a lot of training into my schedule and sometimes it’s hard to coordinate with other athletes.

What is your favorite piece of gear or product from Spin and or Second Sole Rocky River?  Definitely my BMC TM01. Love everything about this bike, comfortable to ride, fast, sexy, and three years later and the bike still gets a lot of attention.
