I’m proud to announce that I’ve been selected to the 2015 Golden Gate Triathlon Club Ambassador Team aka “The A-Team”. Our bios were published this week – check them out here!

Looking forward to another big racing season in wine country.

The A-Team is not strictly a racing team – our aim is to provide presence for GGTC in the triathlon community and help members reach new heights in their sport of choice, but that’s not to say that we won’t nab a few podiums in the process. In the short term, we’ve started to organize some early season club workouts, and I’ve also started working on a running clinic for the club that I hope to lift the lid on soon.


Although most of our members participate in events across the country, we’re planning to race or volunteer at the following events this season:

  • HITS Napa Valley April 11-12
  • Silicon Valley Triathlon April 19
  • Wildflower Triathlons* May 2-3
  • Vineman Monte Rio* May 31
  • Escape from Alcatraz June 7
  • Vineman 70.3* July 12
  • Full Vineman/Barbs Race July 25
  • Oakland Triathlon* Sept TBD
  • Big Kahuna Sept. TBD
  • Ironman Lake Tahoe & 70.3 Sept. 20
  • Santa Cruz Olympic Sept. TBD
  • * events I’m planning to race

I have no shame in admitting that I’m one of the slowpokes on the team – most of the A-Team has cracked the elusive 5-hour half Ironman barrier, and some have even come close to breaking 2 hours in an Olympic triathlon. I’m looking forward to a great season of racing and volunteering with one of the largest and strongest triathlon clubs in the country.
