Kara Sasser is a USAT Certified Level 1 Triathlon coach based in Columbus GA. She was lured into triathlon as a way to get fit after the birth of her second child (when she gained waaaay more than the recommended weight while on bed rest). She has qualified for USAT AG Nationals every year since and loves training for and racing all distances. Being very involved in her local triathlon and TriCoach community is what keeps her enjoying it.

Coach Angel K is a fanatic consumer of triathlon and nutrition research. She combines TriCoach’s real-world proven workout plans with cutting edge information. Having worked in IT for many years before staying at home with her children, Kara enjoys getting nerdy over workout data. As a former cheerleader, she enjoys encouraging others and having a great time.

At home, Kara and her kids can be found at the starting line of a race any given weekend. They also enjoy hiking with their dogs and non-runner dad.
Kara’s top finishes include overall podiums at many local sprint and olympic races, 5th AG at Ironman Cozumel 70.3, 2nd OA at Goosepond 70.3, 9th AG at IM Arizona and a Boston Qualifying, 2nd AG finish at the Albany Snickers Marathon.
