I'm an engineer, triathlete, and beer nerd.
I'm a life-long swimmer and my first experience in triathlon was as a swimmer in a relay in 2006. I didn't own a bike and joked that I would only run if I was being chased by something. I did my first sprint triathlon (on a borrowed bike) in 2008 and was hooked. Since then I've done many 70.3s, 3 IMs, and am now branching out into the world of Xterra (and has the scars to show for it).
I came to endurance and fitness first by way of swim team at the age of 8 and later, competing in middle and high school in track, cross country, and swimming. I later went on to coach the same recreational team that I had been on as a child for 8 years.
USA Cycling Elite / Level 1 Coach, M.A. in Exercise Science. Sports Nutritionist, ACSM Health Fitness Specialist'm an engineer, triathlete, and beer nerd.
2001 graduate of Equine Science from Colorado State University. I have worked in the horse industry for 25 years. I'm currently a riding instructor and horse trainer for Kenlyn Stables in Aurora, CO. I began my journey into triathlon in 2011 and plan to race my first full distance Ironman race this year. In 2019 I earned my personal training certification through The American Council on Exercise. My passion is in helping others achieve their goals and find that confidence that comes for accomplishing what once seemed impossible.
Leslie is a semi-retired electrical engineer who designed building power systems and lighting for buildings for her career. Leslie comes from a long line of couch potatoes and was following suit until her late 40s when a wild hair got her to sign up for a beginners triathlon group. Since then, she’s grown to love the sport and is now co-coaching the beginner triathlon group herself.
This is my 5th or 6th year as a member of the club and very much look forward to coaching triathletes this year and years to come. I did my first triathlon back in 2007 and have loved the challenges and sense of accomplishment it's brought ever since. Coaching has long been a passion of mine and I have 8 years of cross country coaching experience, as well as 5 years of track, 8 years of basketball, and even 4 years of tennis, all at the middle school and high school level. Furthermore, I previously held a USAT level I coaching certification a decade ago, where I developed training plans for a handful of Team in Training athletes. Unfortunately, I had not re-upped my certification, but I did recently recertify. Concurrently, I have been working on a Masters in Applied Sport Psychology through Adams State University and aim to be done by the summer of 2022. Again, I look forward to the potentiality of working with all of you this season.
