We hope everyone had a great holiday season and your 2019 is off to a great start!
Our athletes are preparing for some super exciting adventures this year. Some are doing their first 100-mile run, others their first Ironman. Some are training for ultra-endurance swims, while others are preparing to climb Mt Rainier.
But the coolest thing is that as Anne and I begin our 16th year of coaching (can’t believe I’m writing that!), we’re continuing to help several of our athletes step into the arena for the first time. First 5Ks, first sprint tris, first time learning to swim. Many of the athletes who are now attempting these massive ultra runs, endurance swims, long-distance tris, and mountain climbs were once first-timers, too. And it has been our honor and privilege to watch and guide these athletes as they’ve grown and thrived and achieved more than they ever thought possible.
So, we are beyond excited about this year, another exciting one filled with adventures on every level!
