President

Erin Trail

Erin is a life-long swimmer and her first experience in triathlon was as a swimmer in a relay in 2006. She didn't own a bike and joked that she would only run if she was being chased by something. She did her first sprint triathlon (on a borrowed bike) in 2008 and was hooked.  Since then she's done many 70.3s, 3 IMs, and is now branching out into the world of Xterra (and has the scars to show for it).

Erin also works with several organizations to promote women's cycling, with the goal of encouraging beginners to get out and ride and and gain the confidence to race.

When she's not out swimbikerunning, you'll find her on the ski slopes or drinking beers.

Membership Director

Tatiana Morrell

Tatiana was formerly obese in her twenties and didn't discover triathlon until her personal trainer dared her to sign up for her first triathlon four months after the birth of her youngest child.  She didn't know how to swim, hated running and could only bike.  It seemed like a terrible idea so of course she signed up!  She did her first race and was hooked.  Since then Tatiana has gone one to race all distances and just completed her first Ironman in 2016.  She has even qualified for USAT Age Group Nationals twice although she doesn't know how as she is still a terrible swimmer.

Tatiana manages to balance the demands of a demanding job, marriage and motherhood along with triathlon.  She is also actively involved in dog rescue.  She loves to talk to anyone about how to achieve their dreams and balance the demands of family, work and triathlon.

Coaching Director

Becky Black

M.S., USAT LII, ACSM-EP, IRONMAN Certified Coach

Becky started her athletic career in high school as a swimmer. She went from zero training to qualifying for 5A state championships in the 50 freestyle and the relays in three seasons. In those three short years she learned a lot about hard work, discipline, mental toughness, and resilience.

In college, Becky discovered running for exercise and racing. Her passion for running gave her an amazing new hobby and was a pivotal reason she became a coach. She has since completed 9 marathons, two 50k races and numerous half marathons in the last 8 years. Her most current goals are to qualify for Boston in the Big Cottonwood or St George Marathon in 2017.

Shortly after her introduction to distance running, she was thrown into the world of triathlon when a her high school friend asked her to be the swimmer in a relay. Over the past 7 years she has competed in all 4 distances of triathlon, the 70.3 being her favorite. In long course triathlon, she has completed three different 70.3 races and Ironman Couer d' Alene. She plans on competing in the St. George 70.3 IM as well as CDA again in 2017.

With both a B.S. and M.S. in Exercise Science (with emphasis in sport psychology and exercise physiology), Becky values education in her role as a coach. She is constantly seeking for new opportunities and ways to learn. She has studied and certified in many different areas, including yoga, Pilates, strength and conditioning, sport psychology, and kinesiology (the study of movement).

Becky has been coaching endurance sports athletes since 2010. She has coached and taught in many different capacities including, TEAM TRI coach at Life Time Fitness, personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and more. Becky specializes in working with beginner and intermediate triathletes and runners. She is an expert at run and swim form, and loves teaching clinics and workshops.

Sponsorship Director

Jessica Kaiser

When Jessica started in a first timer triathlon program in 2016, she didn’t know how to swim freestyle, had never ridden a road bike, and couldn’t run a mile.  She did her first spring tri in June 2016, and hasn’t looked back.  She’s completed sprints, olympics, and a 70.3 in 2017.  She’s planning to become an Ironman in 2018.

Jessica balances her triathlon addiction with being a mom of two great kids and working a demanding job.  She also enjoys crossfit and skiing.

Treasurer

Jay Hoskinson

Jay grew up in southern California, a high school swimmer, college surfer, and post-collegiate loafer who discovered running as an adult as a way to get a little exercise and stress relief during the recession in 2009. After going through a couch to 5k program, he decided to sign up for a aquarun, where he unwisely chugged a carbonated energy drink beforehand, left everything in the water by sprinting to first place in the last hundred meters, then spent the 5k cramping and walking with a few short runs in between. The Fall Frenzy sprint triathlon in Parker that same year was his first introduction to triathlon, which he completed on an old mountain bike and flat pedals.

 In 2012, Jay and his wife Jenna decided to get road bikes and take up cycling, and he started competing in sprint, olympic, and half-iron distance triathlons with increasing success. After somewhat of a hiatus in 2015 and 2016 to focus on running and qualify for the Boston Marathon, Jay came back to triathlon to compete at Ironman Arizona in November of 2017. Jay has been a member of AMC since 2012, and enjoys sharing his knowledge of what NOT to do in endurance sports with others.

Webmaster

Katie Chleborad

Katie started doing triathlons in 2011 following the birth of her second child.  While watching Good Morning America on maternity leave, she saw a segment by Juju Chang who was training for her first triathlon and thought “if JuJu can do it, why can’t I”?  Hence started her 6-month self-training plan, guided by “Triathlon for Dummies” book and the rest is history.  Since then, she’s participated in 6 seasons of sprint triathlons, an olympic distance, numerous half-marathons, one full marathon and a half ironman distance in May of 2016.  On June 11th 2017 she successfully completed her first Ironman in Boulder Colorado.

In addition to her passion for triathlon, Katie is an IT Program Manager by day, a wife and a mom of 2 which keeps her very challenged.  She understands the focus, planning and balance it takes to have a full life while trying to reach personal goals. She would love the opportunity to encourage you on your own personal fitness journey.



Member At Large

Mike Butler

Mike Butler grew up in New Jersey where he was captain of his high school wrestling team and achieved All American status as a Powerlifter in college. After earning his MBA from Rutgers University he began working in hotel management, which afforded him the opportunity to live and work in many states. In 1995 he was looking for a competitive outlet while living in Houston, TX and completed his first triathlon in August of that year without a clue to what he was doing. And as you can guess it was not a pleasant experience – hot and humid. From that first experience however, he was hooked. Mike has now completed over 50 races ranging from sprints to 70.3's, and feels that he has a lot to offer new triathletes.
