Belle and I touched base almost a year ago, as her coach wasn’t planning on coaching anymore. I got her in May 2017 and we started working together.

Ana and I started working together in 2011! I got Ana through her first three Ironman Triathlons and I always encourages athletes to go elsewhere if they need a break, need a different set of eyes or just not getting what they need from her coaching.

April and I connected actually on Twitter after I bought “Domino,” my beautiful Jeep from Ancira. She tweeted. I tweeted. We connected as friends first. Then had coffee and then hired me in 2016. It seriously was the start of an AMAZING friendship. My cup runneth over…
What is the story behind the owl?
Chris Fritzsching (Jen’s brother) and Jen were talking about racing team names and he said…”What about “RuRu?” Jen laughed and told him, “People called me that at the gym.” Chris F. said, “There are two Rulons, so why not have “RuRu Racing.” We were curious if “ruru” meant anything. Come to find out, It is the name of a mopoke owl, from the Maori Mythology.
Now, what is the meaning behind an owl? Native Americans associated the meaning of owl with wisdom, foresight, and transition.
As Coach Jen was putting the branding together and organizing it all, she realized having “RuRu Racing” would be a little confusing with Jen Rulon Coaching.
So we kept the owl but decided to stay with #RulonRacing.
Since, Chris and Jen have been in the sport for 20+ years, we figured that we can offer a few things:
As a team, we can share each others wisdom, help each other with their transition and have the foresight of seeing each other fly on their race course!
