Jeff's Short Version. USAT Certified Coach. High School and College teacher. 7 Time TeamUSA athlete at all Duathlon distances. Accomplished Ultra-runner. Former IT business owner. Published writer.

Linda's Short Version. Wife of an accomplished Athlete, and mother of two D1 athletes. Linda uniquely understands that demands placed on the family, work life and social life when the ones you love desire to excel athletically. She has a series of thoughtful strategies and teachable techniques to help the Significant Other (S/O) succeed.

Linda addresses the perception that the S/O of an athlete is a widow by helping the S/O best understand how they can be a positive influence and make a positive impact, while not just "go along for the ride."

More than half of the Immersion sessions that we conduct are lead by Linda as she focuses on nutrition, recovery, social planning, household management, and scheduling. Although seemingly rudimentary tasks, the observed tendency if for the S/O to "do their own thing," and allow the athlete to live independently. In some instances, the S/O is resentful of the time that their partner spends away from home. Neither of these approaches are positive and relationship friendly. She helps the whole family address their athlete's lifestyle choices.
