President

Erin Trail

Erin is a life-long swimmer and her first experience in triathlon was as a swimmer in a relay in 2006. She didn't own a bike and joked that she would only run if she was being chased by something. She did her first sprint triathlon (on a borrowed bike) in 2008 and was hooked.  Since then she's done many 70.3s, 3 IMs, and is now branching out into the world of Xterra (and has the scars to show for it).

Erin also works with several organizations to promote women's cycling, with the goal of encouraging beginners to get out and ride and and gain the confidence to race.

When she's not out swimbikerunning, you'll find her on the ski slopes or drinking beers.

Membership Director

Tatiana Morrell

Tatiana was formerly obese in her twenties and didn't discover triathlon until her personal trainer dared her to sign up for her first triathlon four months after the birth of her youngest child.  She didn't know how to swim, hated running and could only bike.  It seemed like a terrible idea so of course she signed up!  She did her first race and was hooked.  Since then Tatiana has gone one to race all distances and just completed her first Ironman in 2016.  She has even qualified for USAT Age Group Nationals twice although she doesn't know how as she is still a terrible swimmer.

Tatiana manages to balance the demands of a demanding job, marriage and motherhood along with triathlon.  She is also actively involved in dog rescue.  She loves to talk to anyone about how to achieve their dreams and balance the demands of family, work and triathlon.

Webmaster

Katie Chleborad

Katie started doing triathlons in 2011 following the birth of her second child.  While watching Good Morning America on maternity leave, she saw a segment by Juju Chang who was training for her first triathlon and thought “if JuJu can do it, why can’t I”?  Hence started her 6-month self-training plan, guided by “Triathlon for Dummies” book and the rest is history.  Since then, she’s participated in 6 seasons of sprint triathlons, an olympic distance, numerous half-marathons, one full marathon and a half ironman distance in May of 2016.  In 2017 she starts her training journey to complete her first full ironman distance in Boulder on June 11th.

In addition to her passion for triathlon, Katie is an IT Project Manager by day, a wife and a mom of 2 which keeps her very challenged.  She understands the focus, planning and balance it takes to have a full life while trying to reach personal goals. She would love the opportunity to encourage you on your own personal fitness journey.



Member At Large

Mike Butler

Mike Butler grew up in New Jersey where he was captain of his high school wrestling team and achieved All American status as a Powerlifter in college. After earning his MBA from Rutgers University he began working in hotel management, which afforded him the opportunity to live and work in many states. In 1995 he was looking for a competitive outlet while living in Houston, TX and completed his first triathlon in August of that year without a clue to what he was doing. And as you can guess it was not a pleasant experience – hot and humid. From that first experience however, he was hooked. Mike has now completed over 50 races ranging from sprints to 70.3's, and feels that he has a lot to offer new triathletes.
