Favorite Sport: Triathlons

Outdoor activities: Hiking, trail running, road cycling, mt biking, open water swimming, kayaking, skiing, you name it I’m there!

Music: Michael Franti, Grateful Dead, Crooked Still, John Butler Trio, YMSB, SteelDrivers

Home: 9,000ft in the mountains of Colorado

Vehicle: Toyota Tacoma with topper, rack, and rocket box (stickers all over it)

Dog: Weimararner /Blk Lab mix

Husband: Blondish/brown haired Italian mix

Favorite movie: Out Cold (hilarious)

Beverage of choice: Beer. I love beer! I cannot express how much I love beer! Without beer, I would die

Best Beer: Hard to say but for now I’ll go with Mountain Sun Brewery FYIPA

Best Food: Nachos or Sushi…but never at the same time

Favorite quote: “Triathlon: Why suck at one sport when you can suck at three”

Hidden Talent: hanging picture frames without using a level (and yes, they turn out level)

Relaxes with: the feeling of accomplishment

14er’s that I’ve summited:  4

First thing I do in the morning: crack open a Mountain Dew

Gear that I can’t live without: my truck filled with all my swimming, running, cycling & backpacking gear

Best advice I ever received:  If it scares you and excites you at the same time, you should do it

Coolest thing I’ve ever done: Fought a wild-land fire that was racing up the side of a mountain

Coolest Animals I’ve seen in the wild: moose, grizzly, black bear, bobcat, elk, coyote, and they only get smaller from here

Why I Blog: so that I can remember all the cool shit I did “back in the day” when I get older

Ideal day: Wake up early to put in a hard effort (triathlon race, hiking 12 miles, cycling 60 miles, swimming in a lake for 2400 meters, or skiing til my legs won’t work) and then enjoying an awesome local micro-brew on the patio for lunch while the sun beats down. It all is made better when I’ve got my best friend there too…my hubby.

Surprising fact: I don’t own a cell phone

Best accomplishment: finished a 70.3 (half ironman) – four times

Future goal that I might possible consider doing maybe someday: Ironman
