I started out with running to get fit but since I already enjoyed biking and swimming better it seemed a natural transition for me to triathlons.  2010 will be my 5th year of racing, having taken one year off due to injury.  This winter I suffered a complete ACL tear and am still waiting for surgery, but after a 3 month rehab, I am back training hard and feel fitter than ever.  I am hoping for my first podium finish this season, having been within a couple of minutes of the podium in a couple of races last season.  I’m from Orillia originally, and grew up in a house on the run course, in which my parents still live, so this is very much my hometown race.  I have competed 3 times in Orillia, in 2007, 2008 and 2009, with times of 2:07:24, 2:08:41, and 2:02:02 respectively.  It has been my goal to get on the podium in a race, so what better place to do it than in my hometown!
