With over 15 years of experience doing the sport, 10 years of coaching, and a background in biomedical engineering, Jerett is going to be a great asset for our athletes on the pursuit of excellence.
Occupation: Homeschool dad, coach, entrepreneur
How long have you been doing triathlons? 15 years. Started as a trail runner and mountain biker. Coaching for 10 years.
Why do you like coaching? It's so fun to help others overcome obstacles and discover what they're made of. I get to share something real with people in that way, and I usually learn a lot from the process too.
What has been your most proud moment as a coach? Anytime an athlete overcomes a limitation and achieves what they thought was impossible. Especially if they are trying to break out of "mediocre".
What do you want to be when you grow up? Interstellar family space traveler. Do you think there will be triathlons on Mars?
Favorite post-workout or race meal: Salmon and veggies. My kids really like it too, so it's a win-win. It's great to hear "Dad, can I have more fish and broccoli please?"
Tell us something no one knows about you: I homeschool our three kids and really enjoy it.
