About Trish Dugan

Active in endurance sports for over twenty years, Trish is a life-long athlete who has raced triathlons of all distances including two Ironman triathlons (Lake Placid, ’07 & ’09), half Ironman, XTERRA (off-road), Olympic and sprint distance triathlons. She rowed competitively in college at the University of Rochester in a Women's Lightweight Eight, placing 1st at Women's Eastern Sprints, 2nd at the US Collegiate Rowing National Championships, and 2nd at the Dad Vail Regatta (the largest collegiate regatta in the US) in 1989. 

Trish has a Bachelors degree in Biology and Russian Language from the University of Rochester and a Masters degree in Russian Studies from Georgetown University. She worked as an intelligence analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency for five years in the early 1990s prior to focusing her energies on raising her four children. 

Drawing on her passion for the sport and her background in intelligence analysis, Trish provides her athletes with detailed, periodized training plans from a quantitative perspective. Her coaching philosophy can essentially be expressed as "that which is measured is managed." Through her own personal racing experience and that gained through coaching beginners and Kona hopefuls alike, Trish develops highly personalized and structured programs for her athletes based on lactate threshold field testing with careful consideration of their available training time and season goals.  She believes strongly in the importance of applying appropriate intensity to each training session in order to reduce the risk of injury while also achieving physiological improvement, i.e. making the hard days hard and the easy days easy.

Trish has a strong interest in functional strength training and works with all her athletes to develop an easy-to-follow program that focuses on training movement patterns not muscles to improve core strength, joint flexibility, and tendon strength and to reduce the chance of injury. She also will counsel her athletes on proper nutritional guidelines that will help them maintain their training intensity, maximize their performance, and bring about positive changes in their body composition.

Trish lives in Syracuse, NY and is Co-Owner of Syracuse Bicycle. She is a Certified USA Triathlon Race Director and Level I Coach.
