303 Welcomes New Staff

khemThe 303 team is excited to welcome Khem Suthiwan to our ranks, joining Bill Plock in sales & business development for 303cycling and 303Triathlon!

A Colorado resident since 2001, Khem grew up playing sports in school because they were fun, but often spent time warming up the bench. She got into running not too long after moving to Denver. After completing her first marathon, she realized that slow-twitch muscle events were her jam. She got started in triathlon through Team In Training in 2010 after completing several marathons with them and coaching their marathon teams. The Koolaid never tasted so good. After a few years of training and racing she was all in with swim-bike-run, finished her first 140.6 in 2012 (IRONMAN Canada-Penticton), and made a natural transition to coaching triathletes shortly after. In 2015, Khem was one of five athletes chosen nationwide with the Team in Training program to fundraise for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and race at the IRONMAN World Championships. Together with her teammates, they raised just over $300,000 combined. Awesome sauce! Since her epic day in Kona, she continues to be heavily involved with the triathlon community serving on the board for the Rocky Mountain Triathlon Club, coaching with Mile High Multisport, as a part-time fixture at TriBella, volunteering at various events, and now part of the 303Triathlon team. Before making the jump into a full-time career with triathlon, Khem worked in the oil and gas industry to fuel her love of this oh-so financially stimulating sport. If she’s not racing, you’ll often find her out supporting her friends out on the race course, and always with a big smile. During the off-season she enjoys hitting the slopes on powder days. Her favorite food group? Bacon!!
