Tri It For Life - Future Mentors and Athletes



Tri It For Life is not a “training” group. We are not professional coaches.


We were once first-time athletes. We have been afraid of the water. We have learned to ride our bikes on the road. We have walked, and run, to the finish line.


Our focus isn’t just on building better bodies and getting our first-time athletes to start moving. Tri It For Life is a mentoring organization. We inspire women to move because we’ve been where they are. All of our mentors were once first-time athletes and all of them volunteer their time to help other women discover the fulfillment and empowerment that comes from training for a triathlon with other like-minded women.


Mentors are committed not only to helping new athletes figure out how to swim, bike, and run but also to listen, to commiserate, to find new friends and help build confidence. Our mentors, like our athletes, are all “ages, sizes, backgrounds, and abilities.”


Mentors do not have to be experts. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced athlete, you have the one thing that a new athlete needs—someone who has been there.


Many women begin their Tri It For Life journey saying, “I can’t.”


  •  “I can’t swim.”
  •  “I can’t ride a bike”
  •  “I can’t run.”


Tri It For Life says, “Yes, you CAN!”


Tri It For Life athletes...

  • have never done a triathlon before.
  • want to be a stronger, healthier women.
  • are committed.
  • are scared of the water, former swim team members, or somewhere in-between.
  • have never ridden a bike, rode only as a child, or ride all the time.
  • might once have said, “I only run if someone is chasing me.”


Tri It For Life athletes are all shapes, sizes, ages, and abilities. Mentors, once athletes themselves, help guide women through twelve weeks of swimming, biking, and running. We start slow to build endurance and along the way, we also have FUN!
