MEMBER SINCE - November, 2012
Doug Cole is a marketing executive with the JR Simplot Company and lives with his wife, Susan, and two sons in Boise, Idaho. Doug became interested in RODS through his friend and training partner, Trace Dandrea, who has a son, Anthony, with Down syndrome. Doug joined RODS on July 1, 2013 and completed his first race as a RODS team member on July 13 at the Spudman Triathlon in Boise. Doug makes potatoes an essential part of his training diet – eating fries before races and pre-packaging raw potatoes as race-day fuel. Doug enjoys competing with friends and family members. He particularly likes getting a high-five from Anthony before or after races as a reminder of the love inside each Down’s child.
