I have been addicted to endurance sports my whole life, but it wasn’t until 2002 when I began training for and then competing in my first endurance events. It wasn’t very long after I started to compete and increase my training hours that injury started to pop up. As a committed athlete, with goals in mind, I did whatever I could do to get patched up by local professionals to ensure that I could still train and compete. In 2006, debilitating injury caught up with me and brought all of my training and competing to a screeching halt. At the time injury felt like the worst thing that ever happened to me, but I quickly realized that the injury was my greatest gift. It was at this time that I was just creating Endurance for Life and this injury made me realize that I needed to change my approach as an athlete and a coach.
I realized that neither me, nor any of my athletes, could achieve our goals if sick or injured so at that point I started to train myself and to coach my athletes with LONGEVITY in mind.
