Since I LOVE helping athletes and fitness enthusiasts prepare for starting lines, I can't stress enough that training for any type of event (just like in life) takes time, commitment and an understanding that there will be many ups and downs and obstacles to overcome. The most important thing in any training journey is that you are enjoying seeing yourself make progress (in other words - you are making progress with your health, fitness and nutrition and not just checking off the miles). Caitlin C from Women's Health comes from a running background and accepted this triathlon challenge in 30 days because it was something that she wanted to commit herself to. I'm so excited to hear about her race day experience on Sept 8th. Keep up the great work Caitlin C!!
And speaking of Caitlin...
Reading about Caitlin's journey has been wonderful as she shares the highs and lows of life as a mom, business owner and fitness enthusiasts as she dreams big and works hard for her 70.3 medal.
St. Croix 70.3 - May 4th (me and Karel) - I've wanted to do this race for several years. Time to make the dream come true.
Ironman Austria - June 29th (me and Karel)
(IM Austria is a trip to visit Karel's family and the Europeans that live over seas are too fast for either of us to qualify for Kona so we will enjoy our first international race).
