I was a brand new triathlete when I first met Scott. We met at a Challenged Athletes Foundation training camp for adaptive athletes. The camp was for those wanting to learn more about triathlons on beginning and intermediate levels. This was August 2016. Right away Scott dove in to help me and also learn as much as he could on adaptive athletes needs and different setup issues we encounter. The first thing you will notice about Scott is his smile and warm personality! Fast forward to spring 2018, I had reconnected with Scott and we talked about me doing the Boulder Half Ironman, I knew I wanted Scott in my corner. Well, shortly after we teamed up I found out I was going to the World Championships in Kona Hawaii for the Full Ironman. Mind you I had not even ever done a half distance Ironman. In less than 6 months Scott took me from newbie triathlete to IRONMAN Ready. My starting point was that of a recreational biker/ runner, if not less. So this was a monumental task being an adaptive athlete. Scott would go out of his way to make sure my millions of questions were answered. He gave me pep talks when I needed them and also pushed me when I needed it. We had a wild ride together to get me to the end of that finish line, but when I crossed that line I felt great, my race was fantastic and I couldn’t have been more prepared for the time we had! Thank you Scott for being in my corner and sharing the journey.
