- I absolutely love doing triathlons and have a passion for racing and coaching others. So much so that I have developed a triathlon training team (Team Blonde Runner - TBR). I have been coaching for over 16 years as a USATF certified running coach. I have been running for over 26 years and ran on scholarship in college as was honored as an all-conference runner as well as team captain. I got hooked on triathlons at my very first one in September of 2005 and love to share my enthusiasm for them through coaching and involvement in the community. I often lecture for races, teach community classes and offer clinics regularly for many race directors in Utah and Idaho. I am originally from Colorado. I am also an active blogger, Facebook user and love to post the latest training info and products on my website at www.BlondeRunner.com. I also competed at Age Group Nationals in Vermont last year and plan to go back. (I had just recovered from a broken arm so didn’t perform as well as I could have last year so I have to go back and prove myself). I have qualified and am already signed up for the 2012 event and was delighted to see that it will be in Vermont again (beautiful venue).
