1. What are your race goals for the 2019 season?
My “A” races are TRI AC and IRONMAN 70.3 AC. A stretch goal would be to earn a slot for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. The other 2019 goal is to complete the Abbott World Major Marathons.

3. Favorite pre-race meal?
Pizza and Dr. Pepper
4. What is your race mantra?
Be grateful we get to do this. Don’t take it too seriously – it should be fun. That said, leave it all on the course. Karma is real, help others out.
