coaching…

things are rolling along over here and life is good.  I have a new job in the works, training is going well, and I am also making another move….

I have been pretty fortunate (lucky) since I started triathlon back in 2006.  I became friends with some really talented athletes and have had the opportunity to work with very knowledgeable coaches.  I have worked many different coaches and every single one of them has made me a better athlete and I took something from each one of them.  A lot of that has to with my willingness (maybe somewhat annoying!) to always ask a ton of questions regarding my training plan and workouts.  I have never been one to just follow a plan.  I want the know when, why, how, about the plan and daily workouts.

I always believe in changing stimulus in training and that can mean changing coaches in order to try something new.  That’s what I did when I decided to work with Dirk.  I had never been “coached” for long course racing and what he’s done for me is awesome and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for me in the final weeks as we get ready for Kona.

I have had the desire to take all I have learned about training, racing, nutrition over the years and start coaching some people myself.  For years I have helped friends and other athletes with their training plans and workouts but now I want to make it official.

I have decided to partner with Training Bible Coaching and couldn’t be more stoked.  I will be joining and knowledgable team of great athletes and coaches including Jim Vance, Adam Zucco, Trevor Glavin, and Scott Iot just to name a few.

I am still working on getting everything up on their site but contact me if you are interested or know of anybody else that may need some help.  With my background in triathlon (Xterra, 70.3, Ironman), running, mountain bike racing, and cyclocross I feel I have quite a bit to offer to a wide range of athletes.  A lot more info can be found on the Training Bible site regarding plan options, how to get started, and TBC gear.  Can’t wait!!!

my contact info is here.

    Very cool! Get certified, that looks like a great group to be coaching with. I’ve been considering the NESTA certification for a while now.
