This August, I achieved a milestone in my life. I raced in the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships in Omaha. I had a great race, made the podium for my age group and secured my spot to represent Team USA at the ITU World Championships in Rotterdam, Netherlands in September, 2017.

As a coach I work with many types of athletes I see all kinds of people with all kinds of goals from competitive age group athletes to elite athletes to high level varsity high school athletes.
Some have great passion and motivation and some lack that. Some have the drive to keep moving and progressing and some don’t. Some are truly runners, swimmers, or cyclists and just live to do that each and every day and some are seasonal more bucket list recreational types.
As a coach this can be frustrating because I’m looking for athletes that have a vision, a goal and a passion for what they do and want to achieve. I’m a very dedicated and committed coach who will work very hard to keep the athlete focused and hold them...
