Bree had a breakout season in 2014 with a number of top 10 and podium finishes including an overall win at Ironman Canade-Whistler, Ironman New Zealand (4th place), Ironman Texas (4th Place), Ironman Hawaii 70.3 (2nd place), Ironman World Championship (16th place), and Ironman Western Australia (6th place) to cap off her season. To stay healthy and race at a high level, Bree implemented a strict program which includes a healthy diet, proper rest, and EnduroPacks daily system of vitamins and minerals, to keep her healthy and performing at peak levels.
She’s the very girl that finished college with a job offer to teach in Hawaii and another to teach in Costa Rica. With a coin in her hand, heads Hawaii and tails Costa Rica, she gave it a flip. Two weeks later she landed in Hawaii and never looked back. She writes down goals & dreams, then chases them heart first until she lands amongst them, often falling on her face, somewhere between waiting patiently and determination. Bree's dad once told her (before she won Ironman Louisville), “Country girls are made the strongest, remember that”.
In Hawaii she was encouraged to take up running, which soon led her to join Kona Aquatics, buy a bike, and triathlon. Watching the 2003 Hawaii Ironman run through her back yard, another dream was written, “I have to do Ironman." And so she did. In her first Ironman (2007) she not only won her 25-29 age-group, she set the amateur record! That very day changed her entire life. The mother of 2 year old Kainoa and 3rd grade teacher, would be trading in all her chalk and stickers for the opportunity to live out a dream. 2008 began Bree’s journey as Hawaii’s female professional triathlete.
Currently Bree is taking a one-month break, prescribed by her coach, James Cotter, to help her recover before ramping back up for the 2015 season. Bree plans to incorporate EnduroPacks daily system of sports nutrition into her offseason training regimen to help her recover properly from her training and keep her healthy.
