I came into 2020 planning on completeing two full distance Ironman triathlons, with multiple various distance trathlons along the way as warmups to my goal. However, plans changed when Covid-19 hit the world. I continuted to train with my coach Katie Silfies from Speed Sherpa Nation, hoping that by the time my 140.6 races where scheduled, I would still be able to race. This was not the case. I kept seeing race after race get cancelled, and finally I got word that both the 140.6 triathlons I was training for were cancelled. I'm too stubborn to just give up, so at that point I had made up my mind I am going to race these distances by myself. With a solo 70.3 triathlon in the books already, I was planning my solo 140.6 race when a friend asked if I was rasing money for charity like I did in 2017 for Ironman Wisconsin. I said I was not, and he is the one who got this ball rolling by saying he would donate .50 per mile, doubled if under 12 hours, to my favorite charity. How could I not choose Zero when they were so good to me in 2017!! What started as just a plan to complete a solo 140.6 triathlon as changed into something much bigger. On August 29th, I will be doing my Coronaman 140.6 in Fort Dodge, IA and it is going to be much more than I could have ever imagined!
