How I Caught the Triathlon Bug

After 15+ years competitive downhill ski racing all over the world, I found myself burned out when I graduated college in 2005, so I shifted my focus and started coaching at NYSEF, my old program in Lake Placid, NY. That summer, I was watching IMLP and after a few beers proclaimed I was racing next year! Even though I had no idea what I was doing (especially during the swim), the feeling of crossing that finish line in the Olympic Oval was unbelievable and I’ve been hooked ever since!
