The Road to Tokyo 2020



Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
— Japanese Proverb


The road to Tokyo 2020 couldn’t happen without my family by my side every step of the way. As a blind dad, I have a unique perspective on raising my son Kennan.



My Road to Tokyo 2020 will be focused on balance.

In Rio 2016, I was forced to change sports, overcome mechanical  problems and overcome the selection process to make the US Team.

Now, on my Road To Tokyo, I will be balancing life with two toddlers, working full time, and dealing with injuries and other difficulties that occur competing at an elite level at older age.  Check out my blog about overcoming injury and returning to have a great race at the 2018 ITU Paratriathlon World Championships (Link Blog) 



The community of Triathletes is growing, but still quite small. As an ambassador of the sport I’m engaged in training organizations and others that give back to the community.



In no other sport will you see the degree of trust and teamwork that one must have in the guide/athlete relationship.
