“I started Got the Nerve with the goal of providing a chance for people of all abilities to come out and challenge themselves in a motivating and encouraging environment. Since the race’s inaugural year in 2004, I have met countless inspiring athletes who started their triathlon careers with Got the Nerve and have since gone on to competing in marathons, Olympic distance and even Ironman distance triathlons. These athletes realized what they could accomplish by taking their first step at a race that I am very proud to direct and call my own.

On race day you will see everyone from beginner to veteran triathletes, adaptive athletes, and families young and old, all with the same goal…to push hard and discover what they’re capable of. Dig deep and you can accomplish anything!”
