How did you get involved with Tris4Health?
I started as a volunteer at Grand Rapids Triathlon. I had so much fun that when I found out there was another race (MiTi) I jumped at the chance to get involved. Shortly after I became the Spectator Experience Champion. Aka – Snow Cone Jill.


What is your triathlon experience?
While I haven’t completed one yet it’s still on my bucket list.


What is your favorite Tris4Health event?
I love them all but would have to say Michigan Titanium. To watch the athletes doing the ultra distance start at 7 AM with some finishing after midnight is very moving.


Favorite Tris4Health race memory?
There are so many but last year, 2021, stands out. I will never forget the young man who finished the ultra-distance last, running and carrying the 26.2 turn around sign.


What do you love about multisport/endurance sports?
To see so many emotions in one event is inspirational and shows the human spirit is alive and well. We are very lucky to have such a supportive area in West Michigan.


Why should someone sign up for a Tris4Health event?
From top to bottom this is one of the best organizations I have ever been involved with. The directors & staff are amazing and genuinely want to put on the best race possible every time.


Favorite song to listen to while training/working out?
Eminem  – Lose Yourself
