After 6 short weeks of training with Laura, I achieved goals I never thought possible. In preparation for my Ironman, I traveled to the course to compete in a half Ironman. It was a tough, hilly course, but I managed to win the overall and I PRed my half ironman time by 6 min (4:45:13). I PRed my swim by over a min, had a strong bike, and PRed my run by 13 min (1:28), averaging a 6:47 pace. After qualifying for Kona last year, I thought I knew what I was doing. I learned that there were a lot of things that I should have been doing differently and now I have complete faith in Laura’s coaching skills. I am now looking forward to my IM more than ever!
