I am a USAT Level I Certified Triathlon Coach, a Healthy Running Certified Running Coach, a Lydiard Level II Certified Running Coach and an RRCA Certified Running Coach. I am also certified in Personal Sports Nutrition and am working toward being a certified Obstacle Course Coach as well.My clients tend to be new runners and triathletes in the over 40 age groups that are looking to finish their first endurance challenges, reach for that first podium finish, or just strive to get better. I get such a euphoric high, watching clients, and friends, cross that finish line. The smiles on their faces knowing they just conquered their goals feels so much better than crossing the finish line myself.

In this episode:

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in the Ironman Ohio 70.3 triathlon.  My idea was to give you audio as it was happening, but when listening to the audio I was not happy with it.

Instead I talked through the race from checking into Ironman Village to crossing the finish line.  My objectives were to give a product review of the race for the experienced triathletes and give some sense of what it is like to take part in a 70.3 for anyone that is thinking about signing up for one.

This episode covers –

  • Checking in at the Ironman Village
  • Ironman Merchandise
  • The Mandatory Meeting
  • Equipment Check & Shakeout
  • Equipment Check-in
  • The Morning of
  • Swimming the Delaware Lake
  • Cycling in Delaware and Columbus
  • The Run Course
  • Finishing

I hope that this gives a nice overview of what it is like to experience the race.  Please use the comment section below to ask any questions or provide feedback.
