Randy was born and raised on a farm in Ohio where a love of sports kept him involved in the typical midwestern pursuits of football, baseball and basketball. After earning his pharmacy degree, he moved to Northern Michigan and took up trail running, mountain biking and nordic skiing. When he participated in his first triathlon in 2002, a fire was ignited within him. In 2005, he made the move to Durango in order to take his training and racing to the next level. He has qualified for the World Long-Course Triathlon Championships, the Half-Ironman World Championships and the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
The work ethic he learned on the farm and the meticulous nature of his profession are apparent in his approach to training. It’s often the little things you do that lead to a breakthrough performance. That’s not to say that he doesn’t know how to relax and have fun. He believes that a positive attitude is the most important ingredient for success at any level.
