After spending much of my life as a couch potato fighting my weight, I decided at age 40 to become an athlete. I joined a run club and in August of that year I ran my first marathon. After doing marathoning for a few years which resulted in 6 full marathons and around a dozen half marathons, a friend convinced me to tri. I started with the TriGirl SuperSprint and kept increasing the distance to find my limits. I haven’t found them yet! I’ve completed 3 fulls, Ironman Florida x2 and Ironman Texas, over 6 halfs including the original course at Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs, along with sprints and 0lympics. Now I just want to get faster.
I’ve always been a slow runner and was ok on the swim and bike. But I didn’t feel like I was making a lot of progress. I realized the program I was using was actually holding me back. A training partner really talked up TriDot and since I was in between coaches at the time, I decided to check it out. Within a month there was no looking back. I’d found my happy place again! I’m excited to see what the future brings. What were once just dreams are now becoming goals.
