I stood in shock the moment I found out I finished fourth in my age group in Ironman 70.3 Racine back in 2016, qualifying for the World Championships in Mooloolaba. So shocked, in fact, that before I realized what I was doing, I signed myself up to travel half way around the world to compete. It took 6 months to talk myself out of it. Neverthelss, it ignited a fire qualify once again when it made logistical sense. Enter Chattanooga.
