I am happy to announce that, after a hiatus, the kiddo division of Swim Bike Mom has returned.
Todd is the newest addition to the Swim Bike World, and will be blogging regularly about his experiences with coaching youth and junior triathletes. Oh, and from a dad perspective too.
So what’s the scoop with this Todd guy?
(Besides being the comic in labor & delivery? ^^^ )
Well, I met Todd during the USAT triathlon coaching certification back in January in New Orleans. Little did I know that we were kind of neighbors (okay, so not really–but in Georgia) AND, we’d passed each other in many of the same races. (Ah-hem. He was likely passing me.)
[And he had never heard of Swim Bike Mom. (Whomp whomp whomp) ].
Well, he quickly learned about SBM and the Army, and dove right in by posting a play-by-play in the Tri-Fecta group during his epic 20 mile treadmill run. So you all may know him by now anyway.
Kiddos: Three of them: Two girls, 8 and 18 months, and a boy, 5
Occupation: Environmental & Safety Compliance administrator (SAFETY FIRST!)
Credentials: Todd is a USA Triathlon Youth/Junior and Level 1 coach and a USA Cycling Level 3 coach. He has been competing in triathlons for several years, completing Rev3 Cedar Point 140.6 and several half iron distances. He also qualified for the 2014 Rev3 National Age Group Championship.
Annnnnd… Todd has a huge passion for kids and triathlon.
Currently, in addition to his day job, he’s the head coach of a youth triathlon club in Augusta, Georgia. And his little two oldest kidlets are quite the triathletes, too.
Welcome, Todd! We look forward to hearing what you have to say, and watching more 3-6 hour treadmill runs. 🙂
Some of you may remember Virginia–she has been the voice of SBK to date. She is a working mom with a tri-ing husband AND tri-ing kids. She blogs at Tri Mommy Tri.
As we ramp up Swim Bike Kid with an eye towards local teams/chapters starting in 2015, Virginia will continue to guest blog from time to time, and admin Swim Bike Kid on Facebook with Todd.
