IMG_2744Currently, Chris Hague is a graduate student of Sports Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He is an avid runner, triathlete, yogi, weight lifter, and adventurer. In college, Chris ran DIII varsity cross country and track for the University of the South, in Sewanee, TN, where he graduated from in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in psychology. Since then he has competed competitively in triathlon focusing on the 70.3 distance. In addition to his triathlon and running “hobby,” Chris has been a Middle School Math teacher in Phoenix and LA.

As a coach, Chris has coached all levels of athletes from budding middle and high school runners to nationally ranked college students to busy age group triathletes. Currently, in addition to his research, he coaches several age group athletes in addition to being content manager and assistant coach for Triswimcoach.com.

IMG_1268Morgan Bickenbach-Davies is currently working as the digital content creator for Braveheart Canada. In her spare time she can be found having adventures, trying new sports, training with joy and satiating her wanderlust with travel whenever possible. Morgan is passionate about pursuing  holistic athleticism and balanced living.

Training-wise, Morgan comes from a running background having competed in track and cross-country at the middle-school and high-school levels. Unfortunately, she was unable to run competitively at the college level due to a serious eating disorder that held her back physically and mentally. Although her competitive career was interrupted by medical visits and hospitalizations throughout high-school and university, Morgan still enjoys an active lifestyle while in recovery.

These days, her focus is on making sure her training enhances her overall well-being in both body and mind rather than on race-times, etc. Returning to the physical activities and lifestyle she loved—like running, hiking and yoga—were keystone components of her initial recovery and they remain daily motivators whenever those pernicious thought patterns start knocking at the mental door (as they are want to do every so often).

Morgan loves yoga, trail running, hiking, and nature. She is constantly searching for that sweet spot of physical fitness and mental clarity. It’s tricky to balance athletic drive, proper nutrition all the while staying sane and centered. Morgan’s goal is to never get too stressed out (or obsessed) with any one aspect but rather to enjoy the journey and learn to trust that ALL of it is part of THE PROCESS.
