Our Board

Nicole Shoaf
President
How did you become involved with STCI?
I joined Just Tri-It when a colleague suggested I would have fun - I was terrified! But she was right and I found a fantastic social group that loves the sport and wants to give back to the Tri community. It's my pleasure to sit on the Board alongside these amazing people!
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
For me it's the satisfaction when I'm finally off the bike and on the run. It's my favorite leg of the race (pun intended) and by then I know that I will succeed in completing my goal - and that makes the run even more enjoyable!

Youth Director
How did you become involved with STCI?
I have a 13 year old and a 15 year old who discovered triathlon. A few years ago my daughter made me a bet that if she placed top 5 at a triathlon race, that I would race with her. She placed second, so here I am!
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
The swim is my favourite part, as I come from a swimming background. Really, open waters are the best!! then I don't have to get to the run part. (yuck)

Registrar
How did you become involved with STCI?
Our children, Josh and Abi, have competed in the KOS for the last 5 years as well as joining many of the youth clinics that have been offered. Our children challenged us to start competing so challenge accepted, and with the 4 of us involved in triathlon we got to know RossAnn who invited my wife,Tabetha, to be race director for the KOS. This naturally led me to volunteered.

The finish line, life is not a spectator sport.
Julie Grund
Treasurer
How did you become involved with STCI?
My sports medicine physician encouraged me to explore triathlon as running alone was detrimental to my knee health. Since I had no idea where to begin and completely lacked confidence in my ability, I joined the Just Tri It program. This program was exactly what I needed and welcomed me into the amazing Tri community.
What is your favorite part of a triathlon?
There is no one part of triathlon that I enjoy more. For me I revel in pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to improve. And let’s not forget the high fives!! The sense of community and encouragement within this sport is phenomenal!
