Congratulations on being chosen a Full Circle ROCKSTAR Triathlete!
Profession: Chief Creative Junkie (Graphic Designer) at 5 Cents T-shirt Design
Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
A friend told me Erinne and her team at FCC do a great job at developing the skills required to do an Ironman, which is what I started training for.
What is your “A” race for this season?
Ironman 70.3 Kona Hawaii (goal to finish with my dad), and Ironman 70.3 Cartagena (goal to beat my PR).
Please share your BIG goals:
Sportwise: Qualify to IM World Championship in Kona (I’m giving myself a good 10-15 years for that to happen), and lot’s of little big goals in between 🙂
Tell me about your successes so far:
In simple words, I work hard every single day at being better than who I was yesterday. That’s the key. Mind conditioning is probably the most important factor in this whole “bettering myself” journey I started 10 years ago. It started with my personal life, struggling to be the best dad I could to my daughters at a young age, then to running a successful business with the same principles, and now from a semi-healthy to healthier and fitter life style which has introduced me to a new set of goals that keeps me hungry. If you don’t believe you can do it, you wont. Getting in the right mind set is key… Not to mention the amazing group of people I’ve met through this triathlete journey that offer their support and knowledge, it makes it priceless. (you don’t have to put the whole thing) I’m just writing freely and unedited lol.
Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
-Being patience is key.
-and Knowledge. Understanding why, and how things work, specially with your body. Gotta stay injury free to progress 🙂
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
Winning. You can beat the better you. Also the excitement started when my dad registered for an Ironman, and I decided to do it with him. So I hope to spend more time with him doing this fun sport.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
Just tri. Having FCC next to you in all workout sessions makes it easier to progress and fix any bad habits on the spot. It’s one of the reasons I decided to join.
