What Is Your Goal?

My goal is to lose 15 pounds and compete in a 1/2 Ironman on 30 October. I completed a full Ironman a year ago then began competing in fitness competitions. Although my fitness career was successful, I lost a lot of my endurance and would like to gain it back. I will use daily physical training in the morning and a minimum of one Fort Bragg sponsored fitness class each day. I also plan on motivating myself by incorporating functional fitness for strength training. Finally, I will motivate myself by watching old Ironman highlight videos while recording my progress.

How Did You Accomplish Your Goal?

As a West Point honor graduate, I have spent the past decade living by the Army values both on and off duty. My daily position as a Resource Management Officer in the 1st Special Warfare Training Group requires me to account for and track millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. This task requires impeccable attention to detail and incredible discipline. I carry this discipline into my commitment to physical fitness. 

I routinely exceed the Army maximum standard of 300 points on every Army Physical Fitness Test and require an extended scale for final calculation. I actively compete in the sport of triathlon and recently finished 2nd in my age group (13th out of 275 females) at the National Halfmax 1/2 Ironman competition in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on 2 October 2010. The weekend prior to this event, I finished 3rd in my age group (6th out of 180 females) at the Olympic Distance Triathlon in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The results of each competition qualified me for Team USA and the world championships in Las Vegas, NV and Beijing, China in the later part of 2011. I also have aspirations to fulfill my dreams by competing in the Olympic Trials for triathlon in August 2011. My commitment to service and my country make me the strongest candidate for serving as the military spokesperson.
