Triathlete

I Take BioAstin because…

it’s an all-natural powerful antioxidant which helps my body stay healthy so I am able to compete and enjoy all the sports I love.

What motivates you

My dad died pretty young and he was very overweight and unhealthy. I decided early on that I was going to be active and it also motivated me to eat healthier and always take my supplements. Now I get motivated when I inspire people and I strive to be a good role model to my 9 year old daughter.

What’s your favorite workout

I love doing triathlons but I would say that biking is my favorite part of the triathlon. I also enjoy surfing with my daughter on the weekends, that can be a very fun and cleansing workout in the ocean.

Few things you should know about me

I really enjoy giving back to the community any way I can because the community has given so much to all of us. I was able to raise money for childhood cancer when I just recently finished the Ironman World Championships. I enjoyed that so much that I just signed up with a charity team for Ironman Vineman 70.3 next July in California to support the “Save the Children” foundation. I am also excited to be part of the Team BioAstin family of amazing athletes, the great people and awesome products as well!

Anything else

I have an exciting year of races coming up, lots of local Peaman races, run & swim races, sprint triathlons, Lavaman, Honu, Ironman Vineman 70.3 and hopefully the Ironman World Championships again. Oh and I plan to PR all of them!!
