after leading a less than active lifestyle through my early 30s, in 2009 i took up running as a way get back into shape. since then i have run 7 marathons and countless half marathons and shorter races. in 2011, i took up triathlons and i am a two-time ironman finisher (wisconsin, 2014 & louisville, 2015). my goal races for 2016 include two 70.3s (vineman & steelhead) with eyes on a big pr at steelhead in august. i will also be competing in the big shoulders open water swim 5K. i look forward to returning to ironman in 2017. i live in chicago with my dog wrigley, who i adopted over 11 years ago. professionally, i work in advertising analytics, data strategy, and measurement at ogilvy & mather.
