About Couch to Ironwoman

Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm Jamie and I love to blog about all things swimming, biking and running.


"From Couch to Ironwoman" was brought to life shortly after my husband, Mike, and I started running in April 2011 through the help of the Couch-to-5K program. Even before we completed our first 5K, we already knew that we wanted to someday complete an Ironman. Almost two years later we are on our way to making that dream a reality.

Running our first 5K

We LOVE to race! In 2012, I competed in 29 races ranging from a 5K to a full marathon. We also did a few relays and a trail race.


Mike and I started competing in multi-sport events in 2012 and completed one duathlon and two sprint triathlons.


I love the life that we have created because of running and triathlons. We have made numerous lifelong friends, and we have gotten to see some pretty amazing places because of it.


I hope you enjoy following our journey and cheer us on as we try to become Ironmen in 2014 at Ironman Louisville.
