“When you put it in your head that you belong, it’s incredible how you allow yourself to succeed.”
Today, by very popular demand, Jonathan Cane and Nicole Sin Quee make their Ali on the Run Show debuts — together! Jonathan (“Coach Cane”) is the founder of City Coach Multisport and author of Triathlon Anatomy, and Nicole (“NSQ”) is a math teacher at Riverdale Country School in the Bronx and is a former duathlon national champion. They are parents to nine-year-old Simon, and they are two of my all-time favorite people. Coach Cane was my very first running coach, and both Jonathan and Nicole have played pivotal roles in my life on the run and beyond. (Fun fact: Coach Cane was the officiant at Brian’s and my wedding!) On this fun and lighthearted episode, Jonathan and Nicole talk about how they met, how we met, and how being competitive athletes factors into their relationship. Nicole talks about how she learned to get her head in the game, and we talk about how she helped me discover my best self on the run. They talk about why they’re passionate about introducing triathlon to young kids in underserved areas, and share their dreams about making triathlon more diverse and inclusive. Longtime Ali on the Run followers will love this one!
