Walk the Talk is what drives me, I am happy to share what I Know so far.
To improve and develop people skills allow me to enjoy someone else’s success.
It doesn’t matter if you’re fast or not, newbie or experienced. The trait I look for in the athletes I work with is a high level of internal motivation,
a great passion and a hunger to achieve their own goals.
The oldest athlete with whom I have worked is 73 years old, sport is a lifestyle and anyone should have it on their path!!
They say if you do what you love you won’t work a day in your life. I love to walk, bike, swim, and run and it’s much more fun with my tribe! I started Tri & Run Coaching because I wanted to help others love their sport as much as I love mine. Sport is not always easy, but I want to help it be more comfortable, more enjoyable, and more rewarding through knowledge and community. The stories we tell ourselves are not always what others see in us and sometimes we need that community to help us realize we have hidden potential. It doesn’t always have to be about being the fastest or going the farthest. Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.
Helping you be your best version is our goal, we are here to support you.
