"Triathlons have turned into a way of life for me. Similar to the sport of cycling, it's just you and your goggles, bike, and running shoes. It's all about the progression of aiming high and competing against yourself to achieve things you could only dream about."
"After severing my ACL when skiing at Magic Mountain in February 2010 and having surgical reconstruction, I set a recovery goal to complete my first century ride. I completed the Mad River Century on August 27, 2011 — the day before Hurricane Irene nearly destroyed Vermont."
"Last March, I had a stroke and was not expected to survive. I went from being in a walker to riding my bicycle on 40-mile trips today. I love how the bicycle ride makes me feel — who knew I would fall in love with something so simple? I have lost lost over 40 pounds so far and cannot wait until my next ride!"
"I ride for fitness, extreme challenges, and all the beautiful places my bike takes me. I compete around the country in the XTERRA off-road triathlon series. Thanks to Russ and Brandon at Landry's Westboro for selling me that great bike I have been winning on — and for always keeping me rolling."
