In May 2011, I started training with Howard to begin my triathlon journey. He helped me find the courage and strength to try my first triathlon in July 2011. After that, I was hooked. He formed a Small Group Training and Master Swim class in which I participated for many years. It joined a great group of athletes and friendships. During the off season, I trained with Howard about three times a week to help increase my strength and balance so I could continue reaching my goals. Because of Howard’s training and insight, I was able to cross off a Half Ironman and Full Ironman from my bucket list. Howard challenges me, but keeps the workouts fun. He is a huge part of my success story.
