Hometown / Where you live now: I grew up in Pulaski, NY - population of 1,500. I grew up playing basketball, wanting to be the next Michael Jordan, haha! I'd spend hours each night in my parent's backyard practicing with my tongue out. It never led to a basketball career! I also enjoyed snowmobiling in the winter, and salmon + bass fishing in the spring, summer, and fall.
Sport/activities you participate in: I played three sports in high school - basketball, track, and cross country. I played one year of basketball in college. I competed in Ironman Triathlon from 2010 - 2015. Now I trail run, mountain bike, road bike, paddle board, and enjoy CrossFit.
Sats / Accomplishments for sport/activities: I've completed 5 full ironmans, twice qualifying for and competing in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. I've won the Ultimate Hawaiian Trail run twice. I've completed the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike race.
How you use the Kane Revive as part of their active recovery: I live in my Kane kicks! When I'm not training, I'm in my Kanes. They're so comfy, easy to slip on and off, and they fit my outdoor, active lifestyle often transitioning from land to water, and back to land. They're amazing in the desert / hot climates, letting your feet breathe.
