Coach Tom kindly provided some helpful “Tips” for those attending the preview ride:
Tom has been an endurance athlete for more than 30 years. As such, he has competed in a variety of races and race conditions including road & trail races, 24 hour races, adventure races, canoe/kayak racing and, of course, triathlons. He has enjoyed plenty of success (and a few failures) along the way with multiple Ironman finishes, several Boston qualifications and podium spots as well. As a coach, he believes everyone has it in them to accomplish any goal they set their mind to and it’s Tom’s job as a coach to help guide them there. Tom enjoys coaching new athletes to the sport and watching them grow. He also coaches long time competitors who are looking to break plateaus or set new records for themselves. Mostly, Tom enjoys sharing the knowledge he has gained through years of educating himself on all aspects of sports – swim, run, bike, strength, nutrition and the mental game.
