Meet our Try A TRI coaches

I completed my first triathlon in 2005. I didn’t have a real background in any of the three sports, but was looking for a way to stay in shape and a way to challenge myself. When I first started racing I had no aspirations to do anything beyond a sprint. I was happy with the distance and was having fun doing shorter races. As I gained experience I slowly started to increase my training mileage and eventually decided to take on longer races.

Today, I enjoy racing all distances from sprints up to Ironman distance races. I have made a lot of friends through the sport and still continue to have fun. I am looking forward to working with the athletes in the “Try-A-TRI” program. I admire their motivation and dedication for joining this program and can’t wait to see them succeed!
