Morgan Chaffin is currently ranked 2nd in the United States in the 30-34 female age group for triathlon. She recently won Alaskaman, the most extreme long distance triathlon in North America. She resides in Omaha, Nebraska where she teaches in the School of Health and Kinesiology at the University of Nebraska Omaha, coaches triathletes, and is the masters swim coach for Lifetime Fitness.
Morgan grew up in Northeast Nebraska playing tennis and golf and was considered overweight until her junior year in high school. Additionally she smoked cigarettes and had the nickname, "Chimney Chaffin". The major lifestyle turning point for her was losing her father and best friend at the young age of 45. He suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and the bleeding was unstoppable. Saying goodbye to him was the hardest thing she had ever experienced. She then turned to exercise and health as a way of coping with his loss. She started walking around a nearby lake and soon that turned into running and from that point on she started to take exercise and living a healthy lifestyle seriously.
Morgan will be racing as a professional triathlete in 2018. She hopes to compete in two extreme long distance triathlon events, two to three half ironman triathlons and a few local events. Her goal is to repeat her win in Alaska and to compete in the Isklar Norseman Extreme Triathlon next season.
Notable Races/Personal Best
"I started taking Immunocal Platinum a few weeks before my hip surgery, which was in May 2011. I feel that having the extra high quality protein really prepared my body for surgery and helped me bounce back quickly! I didn't have your typical loss in strength after surgery and in a relatively short amount of time I was able to get back on the bike and into the water. I religiously took my Immunocal Platinum every night before bed and have continued that regimen. I continue to experience great gains in my training and my recovery time from racing and training is significantly lower than it has been previously.
