In 2006, I saw a triathlon race in Homer, Alaska. Epiphany struck, destination confirmed. There was, however, a catch: I didn’t know how to swim, didn’t own a bike and had given up running years earlier. Fortunately, I have had and continue to have, great mentors, coaches, friends and athletes who teach me every day about the sport. Learn, apply and evolve.
For the last decade, my endurance racing focus has been Sprint, Olympic, Half-Ironman (70.3) and IRONMAN triathlons along with a smattering of road & snow bike, Time Trials, ultra-run and other multi-sport adventure racing.
Jim volunteers his time and expertise to the Dartmouth Triathlon Club and runs a Hanover, NH based training squad for long distance, endurance athletes.
I love racing triathlons for one reason: there is a direct correlation between the hard work put into training and the results on race day. I enjoy helping my athletes every season reach their best and continue that process for many years to come.
As a coach I believe in building confidence through consistent work, education and a process driven enjoyment of the sport. I strive to find creative and individualized training solutions that allow all my athletes to get the most out of all their endurance endeavors.

Athlete success with The Endurance Drive:
Training with The Endurance Drive feels more like being a part of a team rather than just having a coach. I’m continually amazed by how generous, personal and encouraging the coaches and workouts are. I’ve never considered myself to be a great athlete but working with The Endurance Drive has me tapped into a level of fitness I never thought I could achieve. - Robert
