D3 Athlete of the Month - Phillip Lemmons

Featured Team D3 Athlete

Phillip Lemmons Coached by Brad Seng, USA Triathlon Certified Coach

What does it mean to you to be a "team player"? How far would you go to be a team player on and off the "field"? Would you put a pause to your race season and everything you have worked towards for another in need? Phillip Lemmons' incredible journey through the world of triathloning from CU Tri Team to 70.3 finisher to humanitarian shows his selfless sacrifice of donating a kidney to a complete stranger only to then get back on the training horse to finish his race season.

Check out his Q & A describing his incredible journey.

Notes from Coach Alison Freeman

Mike was out on his bike last April training for his 2018 tri season when he landed first in a ditch and then in the ER. To say he was banged up is an understatement. He's had a long road to recovery, and this race was his first proof that he's got a great comeback in the making. Great job, Mike! Glad to have you back out there.

Darci had a tough mission for the 8k: hold back for 3k and warm up, then run a 5k time trial. She did an awesome job staying disciplined as others went hard out of the gate and got the payback when she passed them a few miles later! Even better payoff: a season-best 5k time. Nice job, Darci!

8th Overall
3rd F35-39

Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

It's hard to believe this is only Dore's 2nd Ironman. The progress she has made in our time together is due to her consistency, willingness to get outside of her comfort zone day after day, and dedication to the process. If you want to know how to come in 3rd in only your 2nd Ironman, take notes from Dore. It was awesome to see her battle all day long yesterday. She had some time to make up after the swim, but she had the 3rd fastest bike split in her AG, and continued to build her pace on the run with a 2nd fastest AG run split. She finished in 8th overall female with the 5th fastest female run split of the day! We wanted a Kona spot, but I hope she's just as proud of herself as I am, and she'll get that spot one day.

Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

Elyse finished IM Florida yesterday, only 1 year after a major neck surgery, where most people would have called it quits on their ironman career. Not Elyse; she exemplifies grit and determination, and quitting is not in her vocabulary. Throughout our journey together, Elyse was never negative or down on herself, even though she was basically starting from zero after recovering from her surgery. It's hard to know what you used to be capable of doing, and have the humility to just keep going, while accepting yourself for where you're at on your current journey. Elyse's passion and drive is inspirational to witness and I know this is just a new beginning for her.... Oh and TOP 10 AIN'T TOO SHABBY!

Great way for Casey to end her season on the podium and in the top 20 women. Casey got a flat, but maintained her composure, fixed it (in an impressively short amount of time), and rallied to fight for her spot on the podium with a top 10 overall female run split on a hot day!


David Hibbs

95th Overall
22nd M35-39

Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

Although the goal was sub 5:00, Hibbs gave it everything he had on race day, and in training. This was a huge overall 70.3 PR, with improvements in all 3 disciplines, but we both think there's more we can pull out of that run. I have no doubt we'll get there with the way he approaches training. Hibbs stays consistently committed to the plan, goes all in on almost every workout, and when he doesn't, he's humble, writes me a note about how he'll do better next time, and then does better next time.

157th M40-44

Notes from Coach Alison Freeman

I've been working with Reyn for 12 months toward a singular goal: becoming an Ironman. IM Louisville came after months of work, juggling family and training, finding ways to get in rides while vacationing in North Korea and Hawaii, and battling the physical and mental challenges of injuries cropping up right when training is supposed to peak. Despite all this plus the great unknown of Ironman training, Reyn kept his singular focus on race day and moved unwaveringly toward that start line day after day, week after week. He trusted me when I asked him to, did every crazy work out I put on his schedule (don't even ask how long or how often he had to slog it out on the darn elliptical), and brought his consistency with him on the race course. I'm unbelievably thrilled and proud to say that Reyn, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!!!


Michelle Franks

160th Overall
22nd W45-49

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Wow - what a day with crazy weather - rain, cold, rain, cold. Shortened swim with the swift currents. Michelle rocked this thing despite the challenges of the day with the weather. Just staying on the course is a big win on a day like this. She executed her race plan and was able to move through her age group throughout the day. Her own words sum up the experience - "It was epic and awesome and horrible all at the same time. " Time for a well-deserved off season!

Ellee rounded out her 2xHIM 2xIM 2018 season with a gutsy day at IMLou. The cold and wet caused her legs to complain for much of the bike, but she was able to get them recharged for a good portion of the run before cramping took over once again. Despite the rough go Ellee found some silver linings in her day and chalked up yet another finish. Congrats Ellee on a great year!

Mike dealt with a few sizable curveballs on this one - his power meter went out right before the race so we had to make a quick switch to heart rate targets for the bike, and his camelbak exploded as he started the run which required a last minute change in fueling plans - but he worked the problems and kept moving forward, and achieved his redemption from IM Boulder.

All along, she kept her head on straight and focused on getting the work done. Laura's determination paid off with a well executed race at IM Wisconsin: a strong bike despite some crazy wind on lap 2, and an incredibly consistent run to the finish. Congratulations, Laura, I'm so proud of you!

After IM Boulder, wasn't sure she wanted to go to Age Group Nationals, so we weren't really focused on it. Then less than 2 weeks out, the fire came back and she told me she didn't want to have any regrets, or "maybe I could have" thoughts about qualifying for worlds. I wished we had more time to prepare, but I loved her spirit and encouraged her to go for it. After training all season up to this point for an Ironman, taking a much-needed break, and then making travel arrangements less than 2 weeks before race day, Danielle had no business racing as well as she did. The picture sums up how hard she fought for her spot to worlds, the level of pain that she was willing to put up with, and her sheer determination to leave it all out there. Congrats on a well deserved ticket to the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in Lausanne, Switzerland!

Solid race for Kelly on a tough day with the heat. Swim has been limited due to a neck injury and posted a very respectable swim. Felt strong and steady throughout the bike with new fueling/hydration plan and put up his second fastest 70.3 bike split. Suffered from some heat exhaustion second half of the run as he pushed through to the finish.

Just a "fun" training day for Lisa to finish off her non-Ironman season (that included an Ironman...). After a less than idea training run up to the race, Lisa executed on race day. Heat was a factor for everyone and she fought off the hard times on the first lap of the run to post a 4-min negative split! Not the fastest 70.3 in her race history, but definitely one that required digging deep to finish with a smile (as usual)!

Very solid race at altitude. Posted his 2nd fastest swim & bike splits with good execution of his race plan. One of the few athletes to even split his run with no degradation from first to second loop. Improved his position throughout the race going from 101st post the swim, 90th post bike and 66th post run. Looking to cultivate a more aggressive race mindset moving forward to get him out of his comfort zone on the run in particular.

Pretty solid race for Chad and big improvement from last year by 54' with most of that coming from better fueling/hydration and ability to execute his plan.

Jack dedicated his training and racing to his wife Andrea, in her first Ironman. Getting Andrea to a finish was the number one goal. The day got off to a solid start with a 1:37 swim giving them some cushion but the hills of Placid are no joke. They came into T2 around 5:15pm--15 minutes ahead of the cutoff! From there, they separated on the run to get a pair of finishes that I'm really proud of as a coach. Jack worked support for her throughout training--sacrificing his opportunity for his own faster/PR finish. The whole journey was the application of the three D's.

An experienced runner, she has worked very hard on her swimming and cycling to make sure she had a shot at getting onto the run course ahead of the bike cutoff. Their plan was to swim and ride "together" (legally). The day got off to a solid start with a 1:37 swim giving them some cushion but the hills of Placid are no joke. They came into T2 around 5:15pm--15 minutes ahead of the cutoff! From there, they separated on the run to get a pair of finishes that I'm really proud of as a coach. Andrea started a long way from having the bike fitness in particular to make this possible. She worked hard every week and followed the plan. Jack worked support for her throughout training--sacrificing his opportunity for his own faster/PR finish. The whole journey was the application of the three D's.

Notes from Coach Laura Marcoux

This was David's first IM and first and only race of the year. When we first started training for this race, he was coming off of a foot injury where he couldn't run at all. David remained determined and consistent with his training throughout the entire process and even at one point during our buildup, he texted me to say that he was stressed out because he felt "too good." I've heard a variety of complaints from my athletes but this was definitely a first! It was a family affair during training and racing as his wife and kids provided aid stations along the course during training rides and his parents even came out for a training ride on the IMAZ course to be his vehicular escort during the portion that didn't have a shoulder to ride on. Technically Ironman is an individual sport but I think we all know that your family goes through this with you, and their amazing support, along with David's hard work, undoubtedly led to a speedy 11:23 first Ironman! Congrats David, it has been my absolute pleasure coaching you this year!
