I'm an emergency physician and love every minute of it. (Well almost :p) I think I am drawn to triathlons and marathons for the same reasons I love my job. The challenge...the unknown...the endurance...the need to think on your feet and be prepared for the unknown. In college I was a division 1 rower, and loved every second of it. However rowing was hard to keep at once out of school. about 4 years ago I started to focus on running, and have now completed numerous half marathons and 3 full marathons. Thanks to some amazing friends and training partners in 2019 i signed up for a half ironman on a total whim (never done a tri, and hadn't biked since a crash years ago) and have been hooked since. Still getting over some road biking fears but have loved getting back in the saddle and branching out to triathalons. I love the challenge and have found the cycling and triathalon community to be so encouraging, supportive and welcoming.
