Brian Muldowney – My Story
How I Got to Where I Am Today
I am a Triathlete and Triathlon Coach. Since 2015, I have completed five Full Ironman triathlon races and twelve Half Ironman distance races.
I am adept at overcoming adversity through the use of problem-solving skills. My skill set is a culmination of my education, behavior training, experience in business, and competing in triathlons. As with the Tiny Habit method, I can deconstruct problems into small workable parts to achieve successful outcomes.
For example, in May of 2017, I was involved in a serious bike crash that left me in the surgical ICU with a number of contusions/lacerations, a severe concussion, and fractured C1 vertebrae. The crash was caused by a car making a left turn as I was descending on a slight hill and traveling at about 27 MPH. After six weeks of recovery, I was determined to compete in the two races I had scheduled for later that year. I was registered for Ironman’s inaugural Lake Placid 70.3 three months following my crash and Ironman Arizona Full 140.6 race six months after. Starting with pool running and riding thirty minutes on a bicycle trainer, I was able to work up to a fitness level to participate in Lake Placid 70.3. In November of 2017, I crossed the finish line of Ironman Arizona in 12:42:39, just six months after fracturing my neck. I was able to do so by working with my triathlon coach to come up with a training plan that used small focused efforts to build back the fitness I had lost while recovering.
I can help you refocus on taking small steps to be successful in reaching your race goals.
Why Work With Me?
I use mental performance coaching, periodized endurance training, and recovery, along with the Tiny Habits method that gives you the opportunity to gain a competitive edge. I also have experience in overcoming major setbacks and understand the challenges in doing so.
30 years of business and community mental health experience with a focus on behavior change. Seven years of competitive triathlon and road racing experience.
