I've coached athletes both in-person and remotely in four countries, ranging from experienced runners and cyclists to first-time triathletes. 15 years experience as a high level age group triathlete up to 70.3 distance; multiple-time USAT Age Group nationals and ITU Sprint Triathlon world championships qualifier. 4 years road bike racing experience in crit, circuit, and road races, with multiple wins and podiums. More than 30 years experience as a runner - from 800m in track to qualifying for the Boston Marathon.
A Navy veteran, I trained for triathlons, running, and road racing events on active duty, even while deployed. Husband and daddy to two little girls.
Training for success in endurance sports as a busy adult requires not just excellent time-management and a good plan, but overall stress management. I have coached and competed through the challenges many athletes face managing family schedules and full-time careers... and then some! I can help! Work trips? I can help! Family vacations? I can help! Long-term military deployments? I can help!
