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 completed her first Ironman in 2016 and second in 2018. 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. Tatiana has even inspired her brother to get into triathlon and lose 40 lbs. She loves to talk to anyone about how to achieve their dreams and balance the demands of family, work and triathlon.

I grew up in Europe and competed in Track and Field from a very young age all the way through high school. I continue running through my adult life but did not discover triathlon until 4 yrs. ago when my best friend did her first Ironman. I was so moved by the experience that decided to give it a try. I was always very active and outdoorsy, I knew how to bike and swim (or so I thought) so I hired a coach and did my very first Sprint triathlon Tribella at Cherry Creek in 2017. It was a love from first sight, and I was hooked. Since, I completed my first Ironman Boulder in 2019 and have done numerous 70.3 and shorter distance triathlons. Other than triathlons, I am a busy working mom of two young ladies, who are even more competitive than me and am I am married to Tony who completed the Ironman Boulder with me last year just so I have a training partner. We love skiing and traveling as a family and can’t wait for our next adventure..

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.

Brent did the couch to 5k in 2016 after spending the first 50 years of his life at a computer and no exercise while growing up in LA. Six months later he did a marathon as just following one plan to another. And 6 months after that he did his first Ironman triathlon in 2017. He has now caught something (and sometimes wishes he could cure it), that makes him want to continue to stay in shape and challenge himself.
He continues to work as a software engineer creating apps, and an inventor designing new products and manufacturing. He is married to Kathy and has four children and three grandchildren. His belief for everyone is that body and God willing, believe in yourself and you can achieve most anything.

Member At Large
Kim grew up in Littleton and hated all sports; pretending to be sick to get out of Field Day activities. Her unhealthy ways came to end in her late 40s when a coworker asked her to ride a bike 11 miles as part of a Tri for the Cure relay team. Although that seemed impossible, Kim trained hard for that bike ride on a borrowed hybrid bike. She was so motivated by what she experienced and saw ladies accomplishing during that race, she signed up for a team that taught her to swim, bike and run. Kim completed the Tri for the Cure on her own the following year and gradually worked her way through sprint, Olympic, 70.3 and IM distance races. Kim has completed over 100 races since that first Tri for the Cure relay, including four IRONMAN 140.6 finishes
