As a child in Madison, WI I swam competitively for many years. As I got older, I continued swimming but added running too. I ran cross country, indoor and outdoor track throughout high school. During this time, I developed a love of running that continues today. In 2010, I competed in my first sprint triathlon in Athens, GA. In the fall of 2012, I registered for my first Ironman 70.3 race in Augusta, GA for the fall of 2013. As I trained for this race, I registered for my first Ironman 140.6 in Chattanooga, TN. Since 2013, I have raced various distances throughout Georgia, the Southeast, Midwest, and Mexico. In 2014, I finished 7th out of over 4500 athletes in the USA Triathlon’s National Challenge Competition held each year until it was discontinued because of Covid. TriCoachGeorgia expanded our team to include a youth team, TriKidsGeorgia. I donated my time and money to support youth triathletes in Athens including my own two children. I am ready to help you create a plan for whatever race distance you set as a goal.

CJ O’Mara – a.k.a. FC
“In August 2014, I competed in my first triathlon. I enjoyed the competition, but wasn’t satisfied with my results. I’ve known Seth for several years so I asked him if he would mind helping me be more competitive in 2015. We started out slow, as I had had major surgery for Kidney Cancer at Christmas time 2014. The training plans he created for me were easy to follow and were typically given to me two weeks at a time. One of the nicest things was being able to contact Seth if I had any questions or concerns, through text, email, phone, and even in person. I have shown tremendous improvement and it is Seth who I give the credit to – he has pushed me in ways I never thought possible, both mentally and physically, and always been there for me. He not only set goals for me to reach, but he fully expected me to reach and exceed them. There is no doubt in my mind that Seth Waltman would be an outstanding coach to many others if given the chance.”
