Ironman Lake Placid - Christine

…I can honestly say I enjoyed everything about this experience - from the training, to race week to the actual event. And as soon as I crossed the finish line, I knew I was going to do IM Mont Tremblant in 2019… I’m super excited about 2019 and can’t wait to see what’s in store for Year #2 as an RR athlete.

Wildflower Triathlon - Coach Audra

This course is not easy, as you can tell, but it’s not supposed to be easy now is it!?!? The vibe of the weekend is so worth the dirt on your legs and the hangover on Sunday morning. Have fun and be prepared to have your ass handed to you with a side of grassroots loving.

Swim Run Casco Bay - Jen

Have you heard of Ötillö?  That crazy race in Sweden where people swim between and run over 20+ islands?  That race that Pippa Middleton once did?  (Yes, she’s a total boss.)  Well, this is sort of like that, only shorter and not in Sweden.

UTMB OCC 56K - Stephanie

I can say is that this is by far the hardest, most rewarding race I have ever done. Running, climbing, crawling, cursing (yet no crying) through the French and Swiss alps is an unbelievable experience, one I would hope to repeat.

IM Florida 70.3 - Tori

This race was “The Comeback”. The race where I had a DNF before, and was determined to return with a solid finish. All in 7:34:55 - a huge success considering my mind was totally on getting back in my car and driving the 12 hours back to MS to be with my mom. I pick it apart all the time, and I truly am now finished trying to prove anything to myself with this course. I did prove that I could race without much training- which I DO NOT recommend, and that if I recover properly I can pick up my training right away.

IM Chattanooga 70.3 - Stephanie

I crossed the finish in 5:06:46 (an 8-min PR) and when I looked up Coach A was there, holding my medal. That moment was incredible. I've trusted her now for over a year and having her place my medal was special. We hugged hard, took a picture to remember that moment and then went on a 15-min run (mental strength training - doing that thing you sure as hell don't want to do) before drinking the most delicious Blue Moon beer I have ever had.
