barrelman finish

After getting injured running cross country in university, I was encouraged by my older brother to join him in a couple of triathlons and utilise the cross-training I had done while injured. I quickly found that triathlon was a lot of fun, was a great way to stay fit while minimizing run injuries, and I was kinda good at it. After a few years in the age group ranks I did my first half-iron distance race at Niagara Falls Barrelman in 2014, clocking in a time of 4hrs19min. With graduation from university on the horizon I decided I wanted to follow my dream and become a professional triathlete. The support from C3 has been utterly instrumental in allowing that to happen and I cannot thank them enough.
