    Knowing that you want to do an Ironman is the first step. Deciding which one to do can be hard. For me, it was an easy choice after volunteering and spectating IMWI 2015. The crowd support is beyond fabulous, and being on the giving and receiving end of the volunteer support is wonderful as well.

    I am truly blessed to have a supportive family, God in my life, supportive race team Outkast, Facebook team, and a heck of a coach, Carl Noftsger! I have had the opportunity to race Ironman Wisconsin for my second year in a row. Last year was my first ever doing a full Ironman and I really loved it. I was offered to race the same race again this year and decided I really wanted to train my hardest and go for my dream of Kona.

    Ironman Wisconsin started out well. Conditions were about as good as they can be on a Midwest September day. No rain in the forecast, and temps were warm enough but not too hot.

    For me, the swim went well. I found my swim groove again just in time for this race. I started on the outside of the pack of pros nearer to the beach, until I could settle in and then move closer to other swimmers and really start racing. A bunch of people sprinted off the start line, but I just kept to the outside, doing my thing. By about 500 yards, I had passed half of them. It took me until the first turn at 1000 yards to drop all the swimmers I would drop, and I caught a pack of men at 1300 yards. Then I simply stuck with that pack till the finish.
