Details

Coach Name: Beth Peterson

Hometown: North Easton, MA

Where Beth Grew Up: Pittsburgh, PA

Education: BS Nutritional Sciences from Penn State University; currently working towards an MS in Nutritional Sciences from Arizona State University 

Coaching Experience: Beth has now been coaching for nearly 10 years, and in many different capacities - running, cycling, and triathlon. Although each of these focuses are a bit different, the goal is always the same - to help athletes to live, feel, and perform their best through a fully comprehensive approach to their training and racing.

Athletic Highlights: Beth grew up as a runner and competed in cross country and track throughout high school, and then for Penn State. After college, like most injured runners, Beth turned to triathlon, expecting to do one or two sprints for fun, and then get back to running full time. More than 15 years later, seven of which were spent racing professionally, Beth still at the triathlon thing. She had taken time away from IRONMAN to do ultra run races (those are hard), mountain bike racing, and even some off-road triathlons. Ultimately IRONMAN lured Beth back in. Now as an older, slower age grouper, Beth still enjoys the grind of the training and lifestyle.

Hobbies: Eating pizza? Swim/bike/run takes enough time...

Why work with QT2: Beth's first experience with QT2 was as an athlete. The data driven approach to coaching and training was something she enjoyed and responded well to. But it was really the "family feel" of the group that kept her on, long after her most competitive days of racing were over.
