Introducing Terry Chiplin

We are excited to introduce a new contributor to the IceSpike blog: Terry Chiplin. Here’s a quick bio to help you get to know him a little better…

Terry is passionate about running – he says that he feels more comfortable running than walking! He has been an endurance athlete for more than 28 years, and has been coaching for the last 10 years. In that time he has coached more than 300 athletes to achieve or surpass their endurance goals.

Terry is realizing his dream to encourage as many athletes as possible to rediscover their joy of running. He was drawn to Estes Park, and has since fallen in love with the beautiful trails in Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park. He believes that running trails and mountain trails offers an amazing opportunity to connect with our true nature – he has whooped, cried, and jumped for joy while running trails! He owns a training lodge in Estes Park, Active at Altitude, that provides a training base at 8,200 feet for athletes of all abilities, from individuals to groups of 15.

Terry is an inspirational camp leader – he manages to achieve a balance between training sessions, learning, rest and other activities during camps. He has been blessed to have the opportunity to work with an array of star athletes and coaches: Melody Fairchild, Nancy Hobbs, Adam Chase, Angelina Ramos, Tera Moody, Lisa Goldsmith, Tanya Poel…He has also just launched (August 2010) Running Vacations, a service providing personalized vacation packages for runners in training locations in North America and Worldwide!
