Through the years I've competed in a THOUSAND run races, triathlons, and some cycling races through my 20 years of experience in endurance sports. I started running competitively when I was 12.

I ran cross country and track starting in 8th grade and through out high school. My best time in cross country was just 18:04 my sophomore year. My Junior and Senior year I struggled with injuries.

‚ÄčIn college I ran for East Texas Baptist University for three years and was "Runner of the Year" each of those years before transferring to UT Tyler. At UT Tyler, I sat out a year and then in 2006 I was the 5th man on the team and we won the ASC Championships as a team.

When I finished my undergrad I had saved enough money for a decent road bike. My primary purpose for a road bike was to commute. I had no intentions to ever be competitive, after all I was a runner. I joined a couple of the Tyler Bicycle Club rides
and one thing led to another. I did my first two triathlons in 2007 for fun finishing 4th and 5th overall. More importantly, I enjoy helping and coaching others along the way.
