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.

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.

Jeff grew up in Long Beach, CA and spent most of his childhood shooting hoops, surfing and doing tricks on his BMX bike. Although an active kid, Jeff fell into some sedentary habits for a few decades as an adult working in IT. In 2009, he found himself in a spot where his personal life and health were a wreck and he signed up for the Long Beach Marathon as a way to cope with stress and try to become healthier. He discovered a passion for running while training for the Long Beach marathon. With some encouragement from his wife, Jenny, and a college buddy, he signed up for his first triathlon in 2014 and completed the Olympic distance Morro Bay Rock the Tri race using a rented wetsuit and a borrowed bike and battling a crazy riptide on the swim! Even still, he was hooked! Since then, he has developed a passion for integrating exercise and nutrition into his daily routine. He is an avid swimmer and bike commuter to downtown Denver. He loves doing open-water swims, triathlons of all distances, and getting friends together to go for a “big ride”!! Marathon and triathlon training has been transformative and has brought him some of his closest friends. In addition to triathlons, Jeff is passionate about making the world a better place through exercise, eating tacos with friends, and enjoying a great cup of coffee.

Jay grew up in southern California, a high school swimmer, college surfer, and post-collegiate loafer who discovered running as an adult as a way to get a little exercise and stress relief during the recession in 2009. After going through a couch to 5k program, he decided to sign up for a aquarun, where he unwisely chugged a carbonated energy drink beforehand, left everything in the water by sprinting to first place in the last hundred meters, then spent the 5k cramping and walking with a few short runs in between. The Fall Frenzy sprint triathlon in Parker that same year was his first introduction to triathlon, which he completed on an old mountain bike and flat pedals.
In 2012, Jay and his wife Jenna decided to get road bikes and take up cycling, and he started competing in sprint, olympic, and half-iron distance triathlons with increasing success. After somewhat of a hiatus in 2015 and 2016 to focus on running and qualify for the Boston Marathon, Jay came back to triathlon to compete at Ironman Arizona in November of 2017. Jay has been a member of AMC since 2012, and enjoys sharing his knowledge of what NOT to do in endurance sports with others.

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. On June 11th 2017 she successfully completed her first Ironman in Boulder Colorado.
In addition to her passion for triathlon, Katie is an IT Program Manager by day 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.

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.
