BIO: I will not be defined by "runner" or "bodybuilder." I am who I am and if I feel like taking some time off to train for a marathon then I will or if I feel like building up muscle and prepping for a show then its time to hit the grocery for some chicken and rice.

People often ask me, what is harder: prepping for a show? or training for a race? There's no question in my mind, show prep is harder!  It's a 24/7 job getting ready for a show! The food, the supplements, the gym trips, the water intake, the salt intake, measuring every single thing you's the hardest thing I've ever done.

The personal scarifices that need to be made daily can make life absolutely grueling. But the time on stage is so invigorating, so exciting! I wish I could talk more people into it!
