Kevin Levi-Goerlich's Background
I got my start in endurance sports when I was 13 by running high school track and cross country. Despite being relatively average, I loved it. I soon discovered that I enjoyed longer distance races, moving up to the marathon my senior year. After graduating I was ready for a change and signed up for my first triathlon. It went well, as I won my age group and was hooked from then on.
As soon as I started my undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland, I joined the triathlon team. At the end of my freshman year, I took over as president of the team and held that position for 18-months. In the summer of 2013, I cycled 4000 miles from Baltimore to San Francisco with the 4K for Cancer. In addition to coming back a stronger cyclist, I came back with an appreciation for the greatness and vastness of the United States.
After the 4K, I started taking triathlon a little more seriously and signed up for my first Ironman, in Lake Placid, NY. After months of training, I executed an almost perfect race, won my age group, and punched my ticket to Kona. Racing in Kona a few months later was one of the toughest experiences of my life, but it was very much worth it.
In 2015, I earned my USAT Level I Coaching Certification and began coaching in earnest.
After leading the Maryland Triathlon team as president, I wanted to further my experience as a coach.
In 2014 I intern coached with the Mini Cow Triathlon Club (MCTC) and loved the opportunity to work with youth and junior triathletes.
I earned my USAT Level I Certification in 2015, began coaching the Maryland Triathlon Team at the University of Maryland, and returned to MCTC as an assistant coach. I also began coaching age group athletes; the coaching, combined with their hard work and dedication, resulted in podiums and personal bests at all distance races.
