Elizabeth’s love for running inspired her to race numerous 5k’s, 10k’s, half marathons, and full marathons. Her TN Multisport teammates and coach, Teresa, inspired her to take up triathlon training after joining the team, and she has completed multiple sprint, Olympic, and half Ironman distance triathlons.
Paul comes from a bike racing background that began in 2003. The half Ironman distance has been his favorite event, and he has completed multiple races since he joined the team in 2011.
Steven joined TN Multisports in 2011. He came to the team with a cycling background and a few triathlons under his belt, but is looking to improve across the board. Steven completed Mooseman 70.3 in 2011 and Honu 70.3 in 2012, and for 2013 he is looking to conquer his first Ironman, Coeur d’Alene.
Kirsten has been a TN Multisport member since Teresa started the club in 2009. An accomplished runner with a few sprint triathlons already under her belt, Kirsten took up Ironman training and has completed multiple halves as well as Ironman Canada.
After years of playing soccer and trombone, Derek decided that straight ahead would be the best choice. Derek began doing triathlons in 2008 and instantly became hooked. He joined TN in 2010 and completed his first Ironman (IM Arizona). Derek has completed 3 and 9/10th IM’s since.
Michaela fell in love with running in 2009, after she finished her first half marathon. However, she never thought she’d do a triathlon because her swimming experience involved “laying out” and “not drowning.” She backstroked through her first sprint tri in 2011 and has since completed two half-Iron distance races and is now training for Ironman Arizona in 2014. She joined TNM in 2013, shortly after moving to Seattle from Northern California. She still believes there might be monsters at the bottom of the lake.
Amy has been an avid runner for 5 years, and finally–with encouragement from her supportive boyfriend–ramped up to triathlons. A couple of sprint triathlons proved how exciting the sport was, and Amy ramped up to complete Ironman Whistler in 2013. Amy is training for Ironman Mont. Tremblant in 2014, and always loves training partners for outdoor swim, bikes, runs, and fun team events.
Amanda started running during her sophomore year in college to reverse the “freshman 15”. After school she found a wonderful running community in New York City where she discovered her passion for running and began racing in numerous marathons as well as half marathons. In her first sprint triathlon she proceeded to fall off her bike and sprain her thumb during the race. After numerous triathlons and a few bike handling clinics later, Amanda made her way out to the Pacific Northwest and continues to train and compete in races ranging from sprint to half- iron distance. Amanda is thankful to the sport of triathlon for always being challenging and new, forcing her to grow as a person and an athlete. Most of all she loves the community surrounding the sport and is thrilled to be a member and ambassador for TN.
