Heidi Coble Contact

Heidi CoblePresident

Heidi: I started competing in triathlons in 2007. I have competed at every distance but probably prefer the full Ironman distance races. To date I have completed IM New Zealand, IM Brazil, IM Arizona and IM Barcelona.

I co-own T3 Triathlon where I coach athletes at all levels. You can find us at T3TriathlonCoach.com if you are interested in on line or group training.READ MORE [+]

I have been married to my wonderful husband Carl (an amateur triathlon photographer) for 267years and have an awesome training partner in Lilly, our 11 year old standard poodle.

I joined KRVTC several years ago and am thrilled to help grow triathlon in our area by serving on the board. Keep in tri-ing!

Amber Whitaker-Smith Contact

Amber Whitaker-SmithTreasurer

I am a Wichita native, I graduated with my degree in aerospace engineering from WSU in 2014. I currently work as an engineer at Textron Aviation doing propeller design.

I started getting into running in 2016. I trained for and competed in a couple of half marathons and wanted to add something to my training program so I started training with T3 Triathlon to learn how to swim. During this training they convinced me to sign up for my first half-ironman, Boulder 70.3 (2018). Since finishing my first half, I have competed in my first marathon, St Jude Memphis Marathon (2018), my second half-ironman, Wisconsin 70.3 (2019), and my first full ironman, Tempe, Arizona (2019)!

I have grown to love this sport and all the amazing people I have met via this sport. In addition to triathlon, I also volunteer for my sorority as a Financial Specialist and Philanthropy chair and love spending time with my dogs.

I started my triathlon journey back in 2011. In these last 9 years I have completed dozens of sprint, Olympic and half-distance triathlons both locally and regionally. In 2018 I completed my first full distance triathlon at Ironman Boulder.
As the training coordinator for 2021, I will focus on providing safe and unique training opportunities for our members to improve race results and build camaraderie within the club.  Thank you for this opportunity.

Brenda BlazerSecretary

I witnessed my first tri in April, 2018 at Galveston to watch my son compete.  I found it to be very inspiring, the wide variety of folks competing.  Did my fist Sprint at El Dorado in June, 2018.  Found out I had a little competitive streak in me and I enjoyed the training, the race, the participants and the volunteers.

I graduated from WSU with a degree in Business, emphasis in accounting.  I worked in both public and private settings.  I have been with Murdock for 35 years now.  Planning to retire from the place!

I am looking forward to learning more about triathlons, the KRV club and the members.

Jason Howard Contact

Jason HowardRace Coordinator

I am a native of Halstead, KS and began my triathlon career in 2017. As Race Coordinator, I look forward to assisting our Board of Directors with growing the Mudwater Triathlon and introducing this terrific sport to its next generation of competitors. I have found that triathlon tends to be as addictive as it is demanding.   I have completed numerous Sprint and Olympic distance events in addition to three Ironman 70.3’s (Boulder, Wisconsin, and Muncie). I am currently training for Ironman Tulsa and enjoy racing half marathons during the off season (Which doesn’t really exist).

Professionally, I have worked at AGCO Corporation in Hesston for the past 10 years in a variety of cross-functional supervisory roles.
