Meet Coach Eric Kenney, His Passion for Coaching and Endurance Sports

By Bill Plock

Did you know Eric Kenney was a collegiate rower and coaches rowing as well as triathlon and cycling. He owns EK Endurance Coaching and runs the Boulder racing team made up of some of the top triathletes in the Boulder area. We met up with Eric just before Christmas in 2020 in his home in the foothills of Boulder. We learned about how he got into endurance sports and how being on the college crew team really changed the course of his collegiate experience and ultimately his career.

Eric has coached some well known Colorado athletes; notably pro cyclist Amy Charity and pro triathlete Sam Long. He is often seen with his athletes at the track in Boulder, riding the roads around Boulder county and at the pool at Rally Sport. Learn more about Eric, his philosophy and his thoughts on the sport of triathlon and some life in general!

Lance Panigutti, His Love of History Helps Him Through Tough Times

The “news” in this videocast is that the Boulder Sports Chiropractic Colorado Triathlon slated for June 6th is canceled. The “story” is how it all went down, what it means for triathletes, Without Limits and the event industry in general. Here, you will hear how much race directors like Tim Brocious of Lifetime Events (formerly IRONMAN), Peggy Shockley of Lake to Lake Triathlon, Darrin and Jill Eisman of Racing Underground communicate and help each other navigate this COVID landscape. Learn how Lance’s dream career would’ve been as a history professor or what he has learned about his staff and wife. He talks about how is extrovert staff like Lindsey McGee, Tricia Dixon and Olympia Von Berg are so bummed to not being seeing all their friends at races–and how he will pay them anyways. How the race community is so important to him and his staff from a personal level.
