I’ve been drawn to an active lifestyle since I began running at age 10 and competing in triathlons at age 16. Although I spent a few decades racing seriously—including trips to the ITU World Triathlon Championships, ITU World Duathlon Championships and Ironman World Championships—the allure of endurance sports for me has always been about more than the competition. For me, endurance sports provide a way to explore the beauty of our world and learn about ourselves in the process.

In addition to coaching triathletes, I spent over a dozen years as a Masters swim coach at the University of Colorado and have coached high school cross country and track runners in California. I started Alp Fitness to help you achieve success in triathlons, running and life with smart training tools and educational resources. I’m here to help you gain knowledge and cultivate enduring roots in an active, fitness-oriented lifestyle.
