Achieving big goals with deep passion has shaped most of Keith’s life. And, one of those passions is to help others do the same. Keith raced competitively since 1996 and has coached runners and triathletes since 2002. After years of high altitude mountaineering, including the summits of Denali, Mt. Rainier and multiple winter ascents of Mt. Washington, Keith turned to multi-sport and has over 20 years’ experience in triathlon, marathon and cycling. For six seasons, Keith studied and trained under pro triathlete and national coach Troy Jacobson. Keith has competed in both the New York and Boston Marathons, with a PR of 2:55 in Boston (6:40 pace). Locally, he holds a PR of 28:16 at the Southport Turkey Trot (5:39 pace) and 1:02:51 in the Westport Summer Series 10 Miler (6:17 pace). He completed 5 Ironman races, including a PR of 10:08 on the hilly Lake Placid course as well as two finishes in the Hawaii Ironman World Championship. At the shorter distances, Keith had age group wins which included the Greater Hartford Olympic and Firmman Half Ironman races. His Half Ironman PR stands at 4:22. Four years of active road racing yielded some regional wins and consistent age group placing at the Mt. Washington Hill Climb. Still a competitive runner, Keith owns a software business and lives in Fairfield with his wife and two sons.
