About the Author

Shane Eversfield of Ithaca, sets off on the bike while competing in the intermediate distance race Sunday morning at the Cayuga Lake Triathlon at Taughannock Falls State Park.

With a degree in Modern Dance and 40 years of deep practice in T’ai Chi, author Shane Eversfield (a.k.a. “Zenman”) began applying his “kinetic intelligence” to triathlon while living in Kona, Hawaii in November, 1998. Hawaii Ironman 1999 was his third triathlon. As an athlete, author, educator, artist and coach, he has earned the respect of many endurance athletes and coaches the world over.

Eversfield is a Total Immersion Swim Master Coach (one of ten worldwide). He founded and developed the methodology and content for Zendurance Cycling – endorsed by ChiRunning Founder Danny Dreyer, and Total Immersion Swim Founder Terry Laughlin. He teaches over 200 classes and clinics every year in swimming, cycling, running and Kaizen Skills for Athletes. He has trained and educated coaches and athletes in the US, Europe and Asia.

Now 60 years young, he continues his personal Kaizen path and the cultivation of kinetic intelligence. He completes multi-day triathlons and ultra running events each year and continues to quietly slip past his perceived limits. Zenman regards himself as a modern-day traditional martial artist – deeply committed to the craft of mindful movement – rather than an as athlete.

He lives, trains and teaches extensively in Ithaca, New York.  It was here, June 2017, that he completed his latest multi-day ultra:
