Meet Team D3

Athletes who are coached through any of our three coaching options are considered members of Team D3. They share in the camaraderie and benefits of a diverse, passionate group of athletes. Team D3 athletes range in ability from beginner to elite, and they train in home towns that span between Canton of Vaud, Switzerland - to - Boulder, Colorado - to - San Diego, California. Beyond our coaching, we use a mix of technology, events, and of course, racing to bring athletes together. We recognize and celebrate these athletes below.

Lisa Plunkett

Notes from Coach Dave Sheanin

A different kind of race for Lisa this time--just 2 weeks after IM Boulder, Lisa volunteered to guide with Athletes in Tandem--pulling Isaac in a raft on the swim and a trailer on the bike then pushing him in a stroller on the run. More fulfilling than any Ironman, said Lisa. Thanks for giving back and being a role model!


Dave Sheanin

Notes from Coach Dave Sheanin

I raced the Oly with Athletes in Tandem--towing and pushing Andrew the whole way. The climb up to Horsetooth took a little extra grit and we had an awesome moment at the finish line when Andrew was able to come out of the stroller and walk across. Good times giving back and sharing the feat. www.athletesintandem.org

Sam had a great race at the Mighty Montauk in NY Sunday - 12th overall and 2nd AG. This was a semi-Olympic distance - 1900yd swim / 20m bike / 10k run. Sam's been working his keyster off on one of my custom plans. He cries a little each day, tells me how hard it is, and then goes out and crushes the race on Sunday. Fastest bike split on this course by 3.5 minutes, and a run PR by 3 minutes. I'd say the tears and the pain are worth the result. Up next is NYC Tri for Sam. More tears in his future.

Coming up to altitude and racing IM is not an easy thing, but Julie made it look easy for about 9.5 hours. The amount of pain she can put herself through is off the hook - full on tears rolling down her cheeks from mile 19 to the finish. I wish more athletes could see what it takes to get to that level of racing. Even though she wasn't firing on all cylinders she punched her ticket to Hawaii again and will be on the start line in October. Great race young lady. You inspire a lot of people.

Could not be more proud of Liz if she'd won the whole darn thing. Liz battled GI distress from about 35 miles into the bike through the end of the race, forcing herself to get down her water and nutrition even though it must have been the last thing she wanted to do. That distress slowed down her bike, forcing her to push to make the cutoff. She continued steady through most of the run, struggling to get in her gels, and at mile 20 was told that she had to speed it up if she wanted to finish the race. Even though she felt like passing out and/or vomiting, she pushed herself to run hard those final 6 miles and made it to the finish with seconds to spare. Liz, I am so thrilled to say that YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!!!!

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Solid race placing third overall in the professional field. Great work of maintaining a present focus and moving from 10th to 3rd throughout the race.
