My name is Colleen. I am 24 years old and a newly inspired triathlete. I began racing triathlons in June of 2009, which I became turned onto after being bored with my daily workouts. I wasn’t a swimmer, I enjoyed biking but only on a mountain bike, and I ran only if I had to. So, I figured this is a sport I certainly wouldn’t get bored with. After finishing in the top 3 of all 5 of my races I was hooked and wanting to take this sport more seriously.
In March of 2010, I began training with Jes in the hopes that she could help me become the best athlete I could be. Jes started as my trainer but has become my coach. She designs my schedule, monitors my progress and holds me accountable to being both physically and emotionally strong. With only a few weeks away from my first triathlon of the season I have a mental and physical confidence that cannot fail me. Now, I am well on my way to being that great athlete. I will dominate
