About Kim Goodell . . .
I am a triathlete and coach in Boulder, Colorado, and run my own website, EliteWaveTraining.com.

After seven lively, crowded, high-speed years in Chicago, I moved to Madison, Wisconsin, to be closer to all the hills and open roads a cyclist could want. After a few Wisconsin winters I moved back to California, but found I missed the hills and country roads that lured me to the sport of triathlon in the first place, so two years later relocated to Colorado. This is a triathlete's paradise!

My success in triathlons led me to begin coaching others, from beginners to serious athletes. I've coached in Chicago, Madison, San Jose/Silicon Valley, and Boulder, focusing primarily on women's training programs.

I've come a long way from those teen days when I used to lie to my PE teacher to get out of running the mile, and whine to my parents about the trials and traumas of being forced to ride my bike to school. Despite the fact that I only joined the swim team because it was the one sport that didn't make me sweaty, I always did love swimming (a little secret my high school coaches would probably be interested to know...)

After spending my college years immersed in Theatre and Art projects, I returned to athletics in my early 20s, and was actually a little surprised to discover a passion for swimming, biking and running.

These days, people always ask which sport I like the best.

Lucky me, I love all three.

More Triathlons for Kim

Kim has moved to Chicago, where she works, plays, and hangs out with assorted groups of art and theatre folks. She began competing in triathlons about a year ago, and has taken to it quite seriously! She finished fifth in her age group at the 2005 Chicago Triathlon, and second overall at the 2006 Elkhart Triathlon. Here are some photos and videos of her at the 2006 Napa Valley Triathlon, where she finished second in her age group. Way to go, Kim!!
