Performance Level


My first Xterra race was in August 2007. I persuaded my family into joining in on the adventure. After we were all exhausted and waiting for the awards, the announcer offered an award (that wouldn't leave a scar) to the individual who jumped back in the water, retrieve an item and brought it back. I had a nasty wreck on the bike course and wanted to wash away my battle wounds, so I jumped in. Shortly after, I pursued mountain biking. However, I enjoy the cross training and the challenge to string all three sports together, therefore, I have rejoin the trio world. Fortunately, mountain biking has allowed me to maintain my strength and endurance so the running and swimming can fall back into place.
