In late 2013 Mike Williams, another Team ER member, convinced me to upgrade my running only regiment and give triathlons a whirl. Although I was initially very nervous I am now grateful to him for introducing me to such a fun and rewarding sport (plus getting me back into the water as I quickly realized how much I missed swimming, a sport that was a huge part of my life growing up but had faded away after high school).

- Clay Park Kickoff Sprint– Champ Racing
