Whether you are new to the world of running and multisport, or a seasoned athlete, I am here to help you achieve your athletic goals. Individualized training plans are based upon each athlete’s unique strengths, weaknesses, available equipment, goals, and outside commitments. I am also here to help you with your race day plans pacing, nutrition, gear, etc. Athletes update TP as they complete their workouts so that I can analyze their data and make modifications to their plan when necessary.
I began participating in running and triathlon in 2005. After my first triathlon, the Gold Nugget Triathlon, in Anchorage, Alaska, I was hooked. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing at that race - I couldn't get myself out of the pool at the end of my swim (it was in the deep end, and a volunteer had to help me), I fumbled through 10 miles of cycling with a rented bike, and I stumbled through the run, trying to figure out what happened to my legs after I got off the bike! I looked at the results and thought, "I can do better than that!"
Since then, I have completed in over 100 events, including:
20+ Sprint triathlons
10 Olympic triathlons
14 Half iron triathlons
6 Full iron triathlons
Numerous 5k, 10k and half marathons
3 full marathons
Awesome trail races, including a 50k and 3 day stage race
Prior to coaching, I spent over 10 years working as an engineer for the State of Alaska. I received my B.S. in Geological Engineering from the Univ of Alaska Fairbanks in 2001, and earned my PE license in Civil Engineering in 2011. I became a USAT Level 1 Certified Coach in 2012, and a Road Runners Club of America Certified Running Coach in 2014.
I have coached a wide range of athletic skill levels - complete novices, highly accomplished age group athletes, and everything in between, including the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment Army 10 Miler Team. I also coach athletes from all over the U.S. – from as far east as North Carolina, and as far west as Alaska!
