USA Triathlon coach and author Bethany Rutledge believed that crossing a finish line could change your life in amazing ways. Once an unlikely endurance athlete herself, she and her husband were co-owners of Atlanta Triathlon Club, a large triathlon community in Atlanta, GA, and Energy Lab, a cycling and coaching studio. Bethany was a two-time Kona qualifier and worked with hundreds of athletes as a coach. She regularly contributed to Triathlete Magazine, Women's Running Magazine, and Training Peaks. Bethany also co-hosted a weekly podcast, "Grit and Dirt," which showcased athletes who made huge life changes. Though Bethany tragically passed away in 2019, she inspired many with her courage, strength, and motivation, and her influence and heart will never be forgotten.
