I wrestled with this long and hard. I had many people in my circles offer up themselves as a coach or some they knew of. Ultimately I came to the decision to work with an amazing lady, Jen, that I have been in contact with for almost 3 years thru the interwebs.
I really want to have a good race in Arizona and at all the races I have lined up along the way. The moment I decided to use Jen I felt and amazing amount of weight lift off my shoulders. I don’t have to figure out how to train for the next 11 months…I just have to do the training! No more second guessing my plan or worry that I have over/under trained.
One of the deciding factors for me was the fact that Jen has raced both of my A races, Vineman 70.3 and Ironman Arizona. Not to mention she is a bad ass and one of my fellow Vanderkitten VIPs! I have made some changes to my commitments so I can afford a coach (guess who gets to start cleaning her own pool) but I am sure it is worth it!
I am super excited to turn myslef over to someone and see just what I am capable of.
