About Brian McHenry
Brian has always been active and involved in athletics. He ran cross-country and track throughout middle school and into high school. It was in college that he found triathlon after his cousin had completed an Olympic in Rocky Point.
The following year, in 2005, Brian and his step-father, Pete, both set out to have some fun and do the race together. In fact, they were so focused on having fun that they spent 15 minutes in T1 changing into bike clothes and chatting it up with the volunteers. Since then, Brian has gone on to complete races at all distances. He is often competitive in his age group and has had a number of top 10 overall finishes.
Like athletics, Brian has always enjoyed working with and helping people. This passion led him to join the Peace Corps in 2006 and serve as a volunteer in Mozambique, Africa. While there, he taught English and coordinated a national youth development and HIV prevention project for young Mozambican men.
As a coach, Brian draws on his experiences as an athlete and Peace Corps Volunteer to develop a relationship with his athletes and help them achieve their goals.
