September Rulon Racing Athlete of the Month

Aloha, Rulon Racing Team and Friends! 

This is the Silent Partner and Jen’s husband, Chris. I have temporarily taken over from Jen, the Rulon Racing Fearless Athlete reporting duties.

Please join me in congratulating Jennifer Rulon, who is this month’s Fearless Athlete!

I think all of you already know why Jen is receiving this honor, but it is worth repeating here: because she fulfilled a long-time goal – as well as a promise she made to her beloved grandfather – and qualified for Kona on August 20, 2017 at Ironman Mont Tremblant.

Let me put Jen’s outstanding race at IMMT in some larger context, as compared to other athletes who participated in the event:

  1. She did not KQ on a “roll down.” There were three Kona slots in her age group, and she finished third in the AG. No roll down “charity” was necessary.
  2. She was the 28th fastest woman to finish the race. Excluding the professionals, she was 14th fastest woman at IMMT. In fact, Jen finished ahead of three of the pro women.
  3. Jen finished 205th overall, out of almost 2000 male and female finishers. That is a whole lot of men who got “chicked.”
  4. Jen’s run time of 3:42:08 equates to an 8:28 per mile pace. Many triathletes cannot hold an 8:28 pace during an Olympic or sprint distance event.
  5. Jen’s run split was the 120th best overall, including both men and woman.

There is a saying about Ironman distances racing to the effect of “bike for show and run dough.” The point being that it really does not matter how fast your bike split was if you did not run well. Having a fast Ironman run requires careful and meticulous race day execution, especially with respect to sacrificing time on the bike and staying ahead on nutrition and hydration. That was exactly what Jen did. Her race-day execution at IMMT is a model for the rest of us to follow.

Jen has overcome a lot of obstacles to KQ. There are too many to repeat here, but chief among those obstacles were four miscarriages, the death of her father, and an eight-year break from IM distance racing.

I could not be more excited for Jen as she prepares to compete at the Ironman World Championship in Kona on October 14, 2017. I hope and trust you all feel the same way.

Bravo, Jen. Well done.

Mahalo. –Chris

The Four Pillars of JenRulon.com

It was Labor Day. I was laying out at the LifeTime Fitness pool, while Chris swam. I didn’t have to swim that day, so I was able to chill for 90 minutes or so. While, I had my phone, I listened to music, took a nap and started thinking about September and then heading into the final quarter of 2017.

Wow. Where did the time go? It has been a whirlwind of my own training, coaching my AMAZING Rulon Racers and building my business.

After the Endurance Coaching Summit in Boulder, CO, early August, I really had an “Ah Ha” moment of my coaching and my business. I broke down the four pillars that I have going on right now with JenRulon.com.

Here are they are:

  • 1:1 “Fearless” Triathlete Coaching
  • Rulon University (Coming Soon!)
  • Rulon Racing (Applications coming October 1st)
  • Coaching the Coach to ROCK THEIR OWN Business
