For over 25 years Jeri Howland has competed internationally in triathlons. In 2004, she had the race of her life and set an age group world record at Ironman Austria with a time of 10 hours, 40 minutes (at age 46)! Jeri has competed in 19 Ironman distance triathlons, seven of which she was the age group champion. She has competed nine times at the Hawaii Ironman World Championships in Kona; completed 23 Ultra-marathons and won her age group all but twice. She is the two-time overall female champion of the Quadruple Dipsea and the 2009 Mt. Tam Triple Crown Female Champion. She also competes at skate skiing, a passion that enabled her to meet her husband, the “other” Jerry, top Dipsea runner and former President of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition. To fuel all of these activities, not to mention working full time at her “day” job, she founded Bungalow Munch Organic Granola, a Marin-based granola company.
Jeri enjoys coaching both competitive and non-competitive multi-sport (triathlon), endurance trail running, goal setting and planning, nutrition/diet for life and racing, time management, strength training, and cross training. She has a Masters in Public Health Nutrition from UC/Berkeley and has applied nutrition theory and years of practice to apply to the challenges of being a successful endurance athlete.
