General Info: Tri Faster was started by professional triathlete Lauren Jensen and her husband Todd Jensen as a way to offer rookie and veteran triathletes a set of unique clinics and camps along with personal coaching. Our concentration is on our clinics, camps and mobile fitness apps, but some space is available for personalized coaching and one-time skill sessions or consultations.
Lauren "Shark" Jensen is an elite triathlete and physical therapist and has been teaching swimming and coaching athletes for over 20 years. She has taught swimming and marathon training classes at Northern Illinois University, written many training articles and has personally coached hundreds of triathletes. With over 75 multi-sport career wins and four Ironman podium spots, Lauren was also a qualifier for the 2000 Triathlon Team Olympic Trials. You can read more about Lauren's current and past triathlon exploits on her personal webpage [http://shark.trifaster.com].

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
