2018 GOALS

This year I plan on staying with the Olympic distance in hopes of qualifying for age group Nationals. The two main races on my schedule are Grand Rapids & Caseville. My daughters' will likely be participating again in our team-hosted event, the Hawk Island Kids Triathlon, with the hopes of two more podium finishes.
