Board Meeting Minutes
Ted Shue - (Years of Service: 17)
Certified USAT Coach and a member of the TriWisconsin Board since 2006. Served as TriWI President for 4 years (2006-2008, 2016, 2021) and have led the Wednesday evening Track workouts since 2006. I also lead our Wednesday night Pettit runs. I've completed all 19 Ironman Wisconsin events and am obviously addicted to racing in all forms - swim, bike, run. If you've been active in TriWisconsin or the racing community in Wisconsin at all, you know Ted.
Kim Kelley - (Years of Service: 2)
I started triathlon in 2006 and found TriWi to be a great support as a new triathlete. I enjoy participating in the Tuesday Lannon rides, pasta parties, course previews, both open water and winter swims, and the all around comradery that TriWi offers. Completing countless sprints, olympics, 6 half ironmans, and IMWI two times has given me the experience to assist others in their journey. If I am not participating in races I am either volunteering or you will “hear me before you see me” as I cheer athletes on from the sidelines. I have a passion for helping people reach their goals and want to give back to the team and watch others fall in love with triathlon. My experience includes leading the tri club at the YMCA(2008-2009), coaching swim (2007-present), coaching Team Phoenix (2012-2017,2019-present), leading run groups and owner of Kelley Kinetics.
Ally Klasinski - (Years of Service: 2)
I’m a runner, turned triathlete. I was introduced to TriWisconsin in 2016 while looking for a new challenge. I’ve raced multiple tri distances since (my absolute favorite being the 70.3). You’ll see me (and sometimes my littles) actively participating in the weekly workouts and TriWI events. TriWisconsin’s mission is to bring resources and opportunity to the triathlete community. That is why I joined. The community and opportunity the club offers it’s members is amazing and I’m looking forward to being part of the board that helps bring those opportunities to life. Happy Racing!
Amanda Massopust - (Years of Service: 1)
I am so excited for my first year of serving TriWisconsin! I have been a member since 2017 and I have learned so much from this group (the best way to set up a transition area, how to pace myself during a long race, nutrition and gear tips, and of course, the proper way to hydrate while on a racecation ;) !) This year I am looking forward to completing my sixth Ironman and third marathon swim and doing lots of volunteering in the triathlon community!
Tim Kellagher - (Years of Service: 1)
I completed my first triathlon in 2019, so I feel like a newbie to the sport despite finishing a 70.3 in 2020 and Ironman Wisconsin in 2021! In those couple years, I have fallen in love with triathlons and endurance sports because of the competition with myself to be healthier, better, and faster while also competing against other incredible athletes. As of April of 2022, I’ll be living in Madison, WI. You may not see me at the weekly workouts, but I’ll certainly be at races and the TriWisconsin IMWI course rides. My goal this year is to race Olympic and 70.3 distances fast (or at least faster than I have before)! The silent sports are my passion, and I want to grow them by making them more inclusive and accessible. If you are new to triathlons, want to take the next step to a longer distance race, or want to increase your speed, let's grab a coffee or go for a swim, bike, or run!
Dennis Hall – (Years of Service: 1)
As a marathoner and ultra-marathoner (50, 100k, 100 mile) runner, my passion was in the mountains. I had to try and overcome my massive fear of water and swimming to do my first tri in 2007 (I thought it would be a one and done). However, in 2017, after a few injuries, it was time to get back into triathlons. Since 2017, I’ve done one full IM, a half-dozen 70.3’s and the race that got me over my OWS fear, Alcatraz. I moved to Milwaukee in 2020 and immediately joined TriWisconsin. I’m looking forward to helping the triathlon community however I can. I’ll be at the P3 OWS sessions and the weekly rides, so I hope to see you there!
Carl Ashenbrenner - (Years of Service: 1)
For my first triathlon, I “volunteered” to run in a relay team in 2012. I was hooked and started doing Sprint and Olympic races. After several years, I decided I should actually learn how to swim and joined TriWisconsin and the OWS workouts. I joined the board to help everyone enjoy a healthy, safe and fun activity. From the first-timers to the Kona seekers, everyone is welcome at TriWisconsin!
TriWisconsin is a registered 501c3 organization in the state of Wisconsin. Our mission is to provide its membership and the triathlon community of SE Wisconsin, all the resources and opportunity to participate and improve their participation in triathlon and multi sports activities.
