In 2014, Lesley kicked off her new Braveheart Coaching Elite Team comprised of 8 kick-ass athletes who are also kick-ass people.  I was honored to be one of the people she chose.

I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me recover and helped me get this far...


My family is the most important source of comfort, motivation and support.

They really stepped it up a level during my injury.

My dad showed up to surprise me at the start line of Ironman Oceanside 70.3,  just a sign of how much support my parents have always given me.  He even brought my favorite cookies from my mom.


Lesley is my training wife / partner, the Scottish Rocket and awesome coach.

She has always believed in me and been a great source of encouragement and direction.

Lesley Paterson is a Scottish triathlete and triathlon coach who is the 2011 and 2012 XTerra Triathlon World Champion (and regularly chicks the guys.)


I have been blessed throughout my life with some truly amazing friends.

Some of my closest friends are from high school, college and fighting fires  in remote Washington.  They supported me when I was laying in bed for months with letters, phone calls and personal visits.

I've been lucky to find equally great friends in San Diego. 


As much as I'd rather NOT be thanking doctors, I am thankful for the great surgeons. 

Orthopedics Northwest in Spokane got me through many surgeries on my legs.


Dr. Kavy & Dr. Chammas at Sharp in San Diego possibly saved my life and got me back to racing.


In addition to being a great friend, Bryan Hill of Rehab United is one of the best PTs out there.

Bryan always knew I could overcome my injuries and he introduced me to both Lesley and my wife.


Bryan and his brother Sean are the Co-Owners of Rehab United Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, Inc. 


Dr. Tyler Forbes practices ART (active release therapy) and chiropractic care.

Many times I left his office drenched in sweat from the work he does freeing up knots and tight muscles. But it's all worth it.
