Hi, I’m Christian. I’m an Aquarius, a runner, a wannabe triathlete, and in the Army. I also like bright colors, animals, cooking, and trying new things.
I started running in high school because I needed to pass a fitness test for a scholarship I was gunning for. In college, I joined the cross-country team (it was Division III so don’t give me any kudos) and while I was a pretty lazy runner, I liked having a team atmosphere. I ran my first road race in college, the Army Ten-Miler, and was so excited to do more.
Once I graduated, I kept running and signed up for longer and longer distances. I saw a guy wearing a Marathon Maniacs jersey at my first full marathon and decided I wanted to do that, too.
Finally, I tried my first triathlon in 2013 and had so much fun…and then I moved to Alaska where it’s always winter and never Christmas. Since moving back to the Lower 48, I’m working to make up for lost time and I have some big goals I’m chasing down.
