About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

It's Fund-racing time!

Last year I had a great time participating in the Rampy MS Research Foundation's Endurance Team while training for the Legends 70.3 race in Lawrence, KS.  The race wasn't my best race but thanks to the fund-racing efforts that I had done I had the extra motivation that I needed to finish the race in really tough conditions.

This year I signed up again for the Endurance Team and our team is training for the TriFest for MS races during Labor Day weekend.  I have done the TriFest for MS Trifesta for the last two years and it is a blast to race three triathlons during one weekend.  It's my local home race since I live just off the race course!

This week is the kickoff of our Endurance Team fundraising efforts.  I am working on some fun ideas for raising funds to support the efforts towards advancing the research for Multiple Sclerosis at the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences through the Rampy MS Research Lab.  The foundation has donated over $210,000 to UAMS in the last four years!  Isn't that awesome!

I'm excited to get my training and fund-racing started.  I am working with a coach this year and it's fun and challenging to have someone else writing workouts for me.  The biggest challenge has been overcoming the obstacles that life and a full time job sometimes put in my way.  I would love to have your support and welcome any donations through my PureCharity site below.
