Making absolutely no money is a tough position to put oneself in, because as of right now I’m not on any salary so the only income I am getting is from racing well. I hope to have a couple good results early in the year to get funding from the USAT national team, but until then I am just going to put on a big smile and pretend that my training is earning me a grand a day.
Having the support of my girlfriend (who also doubles as my best friend), my family, my training partners, my friends, all my amazing sponsors, and the local community is what encourages me to push to the next level. Hopefully with my new found focus and this strong support crew I will prove myself worthy of making a living as a triathlete.
Thanks for following me into this unknown territory! I will report back when I have a million dollars, or another meaningful update, whichever comes first.
