 I joined my first swim team when I was seven years old in Toronto. The following summer, my parents encouraged me to do a KOS triathlons or fun. I got my first road bike for Christmas when I was 9 years old but after a few summer of racing triathlons I decided to focus on swimming through middle school while still running at my school for fun. When I started grade 9, school running started to get a lot more serious. I couldn't decide between just running or swimming, so I chose to do both and focus on tris.
