Being an alum of UNC Chapel Hill Swimming, Jen's natural abilities became apparent early on in her racing career. Not only is she a fish in the water, she backs it up with massive bike talent and a solid run. Jen is a 5th grade teacher, a committed EPT_Racing teammate, and a proud Powerboat & Team Zoot athlete for the 2016 season. She continues to inspire those around her, young and old, how hard work pays off. 

How did you get into Triathlon? 
The group exercise director at the Siskey YMCA thought I should do the Beach 2 Battleship Half Ironman with her. I signed up without even owning a bike! 

What is your favorite discipline?
The Bike

What is your career highlight?
Qualifying for and competing in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in 2013

And biggest challenge?
Always the run

Favorite local race?
Jimmie Johnson Foundation's Cane Creek Triathlon or any EPT Team Relay.

What would you consider your career highlight?
Landing on the podium at Ironman Louisville.

What is the biggest race day mistake you’ve made that you’ll never forget?
One year I got to the Latta Sprint Triathlon without my bike shoes. With some help from the race director, my friends, and parents, my bike shoes were delivered to my transition area within minutes of me getting out of the water from the swim.

What is your one training tool that you couldn’t live without?
My coach and teammates.

Do you have a strict nutrition regimen?
Fairly Strict. But, I have a few weaknesses. That’s why we train, right?

Recovery regimen?
Chocolate Milk, Compression Gear, and a good game to watch on TV.

If you have any advice for folks who have yet to begin their endurance racing journey, what would it be?
I'd share one of my favorite quotes:
"If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done."
