Beth Peterson

Coach



Beth grew up with a passion for running and competed in both cross country and track through high school where she set the state 3000 meter record in Pennsylvania and was also a member of a state championship cross country team.  She received a scholarship to run for Penn State University where she captained the cross country team and earned Academic All Big 10 honors in both cross country and track.  After her collegiate running career was over, she continued to race anything from 5K to the marathon, qualifying for the Boston Marathon, before injuries slowed her down.  It was during one particularly bad case of plantar fasciitis in the fall of 2005 that she decided a triathlon might be fun and a way to train hard while remaining healthy.  She didn’t own a bike, nor really know how to swim, but by the summer of 2006 had figured out most of the details enough to finish her first sprint triathlon in Charleston, SC.  And in the process, she fell in love with the sport of triathlon!

Beth continued to race as an age grouper through 2011, qualifying for and competing in Ironman World Championships twice, before turning professional in 2012.  Knowing that she needed more attention to detail to reach the next level of racing, Beth started working with QT2 Systems and Coach Tim Snow in 2013.  Upon starting with QT2, she saw significant improvements across all three disciplines, including running a 3:06 marathon off the bike at Ironman Arizona.
