Steve Katz
Stephen Katz is an attorney, living in northern New Jersey with his wife
Andrea, his son and his daughter. Stephen first
began doing triathlons in the mid 1980's as a way to hang out with a
girl he liked. He did not get the girl, but he did fall in love with
the sport. In the early to mid 1990's he took a hiatus from competing
to focus on his career and to start a family. In the late 1990's
Stephen became an avid cyclist (both road and mountain) and he
discovered trail running. Eventually he tried his hand adventure
racing, competing in sprint, 12 hour and 24 hour adventure races. He
also competed in 24 hour mountain bike races and ultra distance trail
run races, including the inaugural Ramapo Mountain Madness 50 kilometer
trail run, where he came in first place in his age group. In 2004,
Stephen began to gravitate back to triathlon. Stephen started working
with Coach Cummings in 2006 as a way to improve his training and
ultimately improve his results. Coach Cummings has added a structured a
focused periodized training plan utilizing power zones on the bike and
pacing and heart rate zones for the run. The structured plan has paid
off, as Stephen's results have improved dramatically, including multiple age
group podium finishes, including a podium finish in the Men's 40-44 age group in the American Zofingen ultra distance duathlon, which is known as one of the
toughest duathlon's in the country. Stephen has also watched his half marathon and marathon times steadily improve, most recently completing the NYC Marathon in a time of 3hrs 22 mins, almost 20 minutes faster than his previous PR. Stephen has also gained automatic entry into the 2011 NYC Marathon by completing a half marathon in a time of 1:29 minutes.

Stephen's races for 2011 include the New York City Half Marathon, Nautica South Beach Triathlon, Rev 3 Half Ironman, Musselman Half Ironman, New York City Triathlon, New Jersey State Triathlon, Westchester Toughman Half Ironman and the New York City Marathon.
