President • Wednesday Night MTB Ride Lead
I'm originally from the streets of New York City but have lived in Texas longer than anywhere else I have ventured. I have boots, a truck and a dog so that makes it official... I'm a Texan. Married my college sweet-heart and have two teenage boys who keep me young and fit. I've always played sports and love games. My kids call me the family "fun maker" and my wife calls me the "me too guy". I see someone doing something fun and I want to do it as well. Actually, that's how I got into triathlons. my sister-in-law did an Ironman in Lake Placid and it looked like fun so I said, "me too". 7 months later I completed my first full Ironman and haven't looked back.
Besides training for Ironman events, I love riding and racing mountain bikes. I also enjoy lake living and the good life.
Vice President • Tuesday Morning Intervals Lead
I did my first tri in 2012 and was hooked! I couldn’t believe I had “exercised” for 1 hour and 18 minutes non stop! A few weeks later I literally pedaled into the GTT group bike ride by happenstance. The rest is history!
My first GTT Tuesday morning interval run was a few months later and I’ve been a regular ever since. I’ve learned so much on Tuesdays including how to run fast!
Now with four marathons, two Ironmans and dozens of shorter races (tris, dus, runs, bikes and swims) under my belt, I’m still learning and still growing. I’m so thankful for this team and all the assistance I’ve been given. There’s a heart to encourage embedded in this team and I love that! I too love sharing what I know and helping others.
Come join me on a Tuesday morning and be sure to ask if you need anything or extra explanation! I look forward to meeting you! It’s a gift to train, let’s share it together!
I grew up in the Lake District in England and arrived in the USA in 1988.....Been here pretty much ever since! My interests have always gravitated towards the outdoors but was never really motivated to be a regular athlete until the Covid 19 Pandemic. Due to the circumstances, I began to run on the trails and found myself competing in local trail runs. When I was invited to come out to a newly formed Mountain Bike group, I very quickly found myself getting passionate about that sport. A recent Road Bike purchase now finds me enjoying long rides with the group, something I would have never imagined myself doing several years ago.
I find myself exercising with the group or by myself every day of the week now which is obviously good for the mind, body, and soul. This GTT group has really opened new doors for me and paved the way for many achievements with more on the horizon. It's a wonderful fellowship!
Treasurer • Club Coach • Monday Night OWS Lead • Thursday Night Hills Lead
Christine has been involved with sports since she first started running in 1993. After completing her first Half Marathon, the Royal Windsor Half Marathon, she decided to join her local running club in England, Burnham Joggers. She rapidly became an active board member, holding several positions at once; Ladies Club Captain, Race Director and Uniform Sales. As her passion for running and competing developed she looked for more challenging races and discovered Adventure Racing and Triathlon. Her first Triathlon was the Royal Windsor Triathlon which she completed in a borrowed Tri Suit, Wetsuit, and an old Raleigh Bike. From there she got the bug and can say the rest is history. Christine re-located to Georgetown, Texas in 2002 and her passion to have a club locally drove her to start the Georgetown Running Club in 2007 and subsequently the Georgetown Triathletes in 2009.
Christine has competed in and around the globe as well the Half Ironman World Championships in Mooloolaba, Australia September 2016, Half Ironman World Championships in Niece, France 2019 and was also inducted into the USAT Hall of Fame for the South Mid-West Region 2016. In 2019 she also competed in Ironman UK and placed 3rd in her Age Group with her family cheering on.
Christine's passion is to bring the love of sport to everyone, pass on her knowledge and experience to all age groups, so that everyone can enjoy the thrills and spills that the sport brings.

Social Media Chair • Membership Services Chair
I am originally from New Jersey. I have been a runner for 10+ years. When I moved to Texas in 2018, I joined the Georgetown Triathletes to make friends and find some good running spots.
After an injury in 2021, I started swimming and biking to maintain my fitness as I was unable to run. All those hours in the pool and on the bike led to me being bitten by the triathlon bug; I completed my first sprint triathlon in May 2022!
I'm excited to be on the GTT board so I can help other folks explore the world of swimming, cycling, and running. I hope to show everyone triathlon can be fun for people of all fitness levels.
