Kristin comes from a running background, primarily racing NCAA as a 400-800m track athlete throughout college. She always rode her bike for transport and swam off and on for cross-training. Upon entering a local biathlon in ’99 and winning it, she was hooked on multisport. Since then, each year she’s qualified for ITU Duathlon World Championships, winning 5 World age group titles (Sprint, Olympic, and Long Course distancesā€¦most recent being October 2015), 10 USAT National Championship titles, and several USAT National awards including Masters Athlete of the Year and Overall Athlete of the Year in 2005.

Ā Kristin2After two Achilles surgeries and other age-related long-term training/racing issues have evolved into chronic discomfort and slow-down on the run, Kristin decided to switch focus a bit more on to the sport of cycling, joining the team last year. Ā Just recently upgrading to a road Cat 3, she hopes to be a valuable team member, embrace new challenges, and mostly, have fun.

Outside of racing, Kristin works full time as an RN at UNC Childrenā€™s Hospital. She has two furry felines and tries unsuccessfully to keep the wild deer and squirrels from devouring her flowers.
