Meredith grew up in Columbus, Ohio where she was a 4-sport athlete and was inducted into her high school's Athletic Hall of Fame. Meredith went on to receive a Division I athletic scholarship at Syracuse University where she participated in field hockey and track. After graduation in 2000, she used her graduation money to purchase her first triathlon bike and entered in a full Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run) two weeks later. From that moment on, she caught the spirit of Ironman competition and hasn't looked back. Since that first Ironman in 2000, Meredith has completed 59 full Ironman races all over the United States and the world. She is an 11 time full distance Ironman and 21 time half distance Ironman champion.
Outside of her career as a professional Ironman triathlete, Meredith takes pride in being the best wife, daughter, sister, friend and mentor that she can possibly be every day. Her family and friends are paramount in fueling her energies to compete at such an elite level.
Life of a Triathlete:
