Coach Morgon Latimore

The reason I’m dedicated to changing lives…

Years ago, my life was challenging (to say the least), but I had no idea that I was wasting away until I started to lose those closest to me. First, my little brother was killed. Then, I went through a divorce at a young age, my grandmother that raised me passed away, and when I deployed to Afghanistan I witnessed death almost daily.

When I came back from my combat deployment, I felt like I had been stripped of who I’d been before. Nothing felt or seemed the same. My soul had been exposed, and I didn’t know how to protect it.

My Duty to Give back

It wasn’t until a very awesome friend told me, “It’s hard, but you have to get back out there,” that I started cycling and running. That’s when I realized that I could inspire others and change lives through fitness. Since then, I have dedicated my actions to making sure athletes never feel alone and to continuously helping them uncover their “why”.

I have learned that when you focus on the people everything else will work itself out, so every day I do just that. I focus on the people. Triathlon has given me so much joy and I feel it is my duty to give back.

IN ALL MY JOURNEYS I HAD TO START SOMEWHERE,
LET ME HELP YOU START TODAY.

Six Facts about Coach Morgon

Asset 8
My first triathlon was Semper Tri Sprint, and I was not prepared at all. I thought I could muscle through it and still have fun. I was so wrong. I got it done, despite having a surf- enter ocean swim (I’d never been swimming in the ocean before that day) and a run that felt like God himself was mad at me for making the poor choice to run in insoles I had never used before.
Asset 13
I have spent most of my life feeling alone and detached from the world but have always felt that I had a purpose. Even as a kid, I would fantasize about having superpowers. I believed that one day the powers would just appear, and I would know what I was meant for.
Asset 12
The first time I cried about a race wasn’t at my Ultraman Florida finish in 2018. It happened many years before that while watching the play-back of the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona. I believe it was on CBS, but I’m not 100% certain. What I DO know is that I was so overwhelmed with emotion hearing story after story of triathletes defying all odds to earn the title of IRONMAN.
Asset 11
I was raised by my mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and aunt, and I was no saint. They always supported me, even though I didn’t see it when I was young. Being raised by women created an appreciation within me that I truly don’t know how to explain. The strength and resolve that I have seen from them has created the man I have become. I believe this has been a vital part of my success.
Asset 10
Surprisingly, I never thought I would become the coach that I am today. I have always been told that I was a natural leader, but I never would have imagined that I could help so many athletes become more than they thought possible. I’ve coached and mentored over 1,000 athletes, and every interaction has made me a better coach.
Asset 9

I want to solo hike the Pacific Crest Trail and the Appalachian Trail one day. I have always been fascinated with exploring and setting off on my own adventure. I would describe it as my rebirth or spiritual journey to uncover a deeper part of myself. Now to find 6 months in my schedule to play in the forest.
