I was excited when Dawn and Clay asked me to talk about triathlon training, my accomplishments and future goals. When I started training at MSA with Coach Clay, I had some marathon and triathlon experience with Sprints, Olympics and Half Ironmans etc. However, my training was inconsistent, doing enough to get by - a ‘back of the packer’. I’d always felt like I got hit by a truck for days after a long race due to minimal training. In 2014, I decided it was time to do a full Ironman and knew I needed a coach to get me to the start and finish. A friend recommended Clay. I met with Coach Clay at Multisports Academy and walked out feeling scared and nervous but happy with what he had to say. I felt it was possible at this point in my life to train and do it! I signed up for Ironman Florida and embarked on that long journey, starting with group swim and Computrainer classes over the winter. May 1st, Ironman training officially began. Clay and I met to set goals. From start to finish, it was an amazing journey. Clay absolutely cares about his athletes. He’s always accessible and there to support. He knows when to push, cut back, or tell ya ‘cut the crap and get to it’. He always checked in knowing I worked nights as a RN and trained alone most of the time. I only missed 5 workouts in 6 months because he kept close tabs. Totally love Clay’s funny notes in my Training Peak software on hard days, makes me laugh! Yes, I became an IRONMAN! I will never forget that day as long as I live :)
Since Ironman Florida and becoming a grandma, I switched over to trail running and Ultras for a change over the last 2 years. With Clay’s guidance, I’ve completed a marathon up Bear Mountain, different Ultra distances up to 50 miles (honestly felt it was harder than IM training), and had one failed attempt at a 100k due to an injury that I’ve been dealing with ever since. I am finally so happy to be back to triathlon! I’ve absolutely enjoyed making friends and swimming with the Mossies! Jealous that I can never bike with you all, you’re so fast and I want that!! Love seeing all the accomplishments on Facebook. I was happy to race 2 Sprints and an Olympic this past weekend with a few of the Team Mossman peeps. Such a supportive group of athletes is a direct reflection of MSA’s dedication to their athletes. Although I’ve just begun again and Triathlon season is coming to an end, I honestly feel up to speed and a little stronger than before. I look forward to training with you all for whatever the future holds. Maybe another Ironman....???
