As the head coach at Pure Endurance I pride myself on helping my athletes find a balance in life that includes family, work, social commitments, training, and racing. I have found that a "perfect training plan" is one that leaves time for the individual to have a thriving life outside of sport as well. Being that I coach mostly working professionals who have an already full plate, I seek to balance the training stress on a week to week basis so that they can be active for the long term.
I started in the sport of triathlon as a youngster at the age of 9 or 10, I can remember the anxiety of race morning like it was yesterday. Fast forward 30 years and I now get to experience the same race anxiety as I watch my coached athletes toe the line on race morning, and on occasion where I suit up and get out there to lay it down. I have to say that while I love going hard on training sessions and occasional races I love the opportunity to watch my athletes perform on race day. The expressions that i get to see as they cross the line, many times with a new personal best time are some of the best feelings in the world and I am fortunate to be able to be a part of their journey. Having the opportunity to coach multi-sport and endurance athletes for the past 4 seasons I have come to understand that there is no one size fits all or even most approach. That is why I take the time to listen to each athlete and treat them as an individual when it comes to their training, goals and events. Having recently turned 40 I have hired a coach for myself and am preparing to race "Honu" Hawaii 70.3 on June 2nd 2018.
