Having grown up playing sports, I am well-versed in the discipline and mental fortitude that it takes to succeed and achieve results. However, I was also raised in an environment that prioritized academics above all else, so when push came to shove, schoolwork would always rank higher than athletics. This meant that if I wanted to pursue sports beyond the recreational, weekend warrior approach, it would take significant dedication and focus. My love for competition in a variety of sports saw me involved in exercise throughout high school, college, and even now, as I finish up my doctorate degree in statistics and begin full time work as a data scientist. Triathlon began as a way for me to stay healthy and has become a great source of happiness and a way for me to achieve some inner peace in the midst of everyday stresses and struggles. Even as life seemingly becomes busier with professional and personal commitments, my mantra has always been, “We don’t have time. We make time.”
This year, I raced at 70.3 Santa Cruz (4:36), 70.3 Hawaii (4:57), and San Francisco Marathon (3:09).
