When I was getting towards the end of the season, the miles and exhaustion was really building. I had already realized Laura was a phenomenal coach with the results I had thus far in riding 20 mph and running almost a 7:00 mile at Red Line, then shattering my previous year’s time in Blue Ridge. During the Augusta training, Laura had grace, understanding, compassion and provided A LOT of required motivation.
in March I decided to work with Laura and knew I had made the right choice. What I did not truly realize but quickly became apparent is the depth of knowledge I instantly had at my disposal. Her willingness to provide a few minutes of time almost any time was priceless…

For those of you who don’t Laura she is a wonderfully terrific triathlete coach. She coaches athletes from all over the U.S. to compete in triathlons specifically in the 1/2 ironman and full ironman distance… At the conclusion of our Starbucks meeting I figured “Laura knows best” and hired her to prepare me for Augusta 2013!
I had convinced myself that a busy work and travel schedule would prevent me from ever doing a triathlon longer than Olympic distance. But Laura’s coaching convinced me otherwise. With a carefully set plan, and coordination with my travel schedule to accommodate workouts, I completed my first Ironman in Florida in November 2011. Don’t ever […]
